Happy Valentine's Day ~ Love Boat Style & Eco Smiles

When you're a 3rd grade teacher, you have a tool belt of "teacher tormenting tidbits." 

True terrorism? 
Oh heavens no!!  
Just things that you do just for the soul purpose of creating your own personal smirk because you know it'll send your 8 and 9 year olds into a "ooh, yuck" tizzy.  Of course, it's a win-win for all because it secretly adds humor and levity to the group.  

My tidbits usually revolve around kissing, love and romance.  One of my personal favorites is breaking into song during romantic chapters with the theme of 1970's pop TV favorite, "The Love Boat."  Oh, squirm they do!  Hee hee hee! 

Ergo, Valentine's Day is ripe with opportunity to playfully harass and see kids hide their faces in the shock of the subject level!  So on a holiday centered around love, how could I not show "The Love Boat" intro video.
(And yes, I had students on the floor (seemingly in pain), and entire heads disappearing inside shirts.  Hee hee hee.)
But, upon finding a great little gem of an article on Twitter from "Our Everyday Earth's" website on cruises, how could I pass up "The Love Boat" connection??

When you go to, you find the following article: "3 Cruise Lines Focused on Eco Improvement."  In it, you get the inside eco-info on 3 cruise lines and their Environmental Report Cards.  I don't want to spoil the ending for you, so go over to "Our Everyday Earth" to check it out.  If you're planning a spring time cruise, one of these three might be ones with which you fall in love!

Happy Valentine's Day!
