As you are prepping for February, take a look at some of our most popular Valentine's Day products. These resources will keep your students engaged and learning with fun language arts activities. Let's take a look at each one individually.
Valentine's Day Leveled Stories
Just released, our newest product is leveled stories made just for Valentine's Day. This resource includes 20 Lexile-leveled stories that support reading comprehension. Students will read Valentine's stories on their own reading level. They will work on vocabulary and reading comprehension by answering multiple-choice and short-answer questions. Assign these digitally or print the stories. They are available in both color and black and white.
Valentine's Day Writing Project
This is a creative writing project that will take you through the steps of writing. It can be done at any time of the year but works especially well around Valentine's Day. Students will write about someone they love. This is a super fun activity for the students and many teachers are claiming it is their favorite thing they have ever purchased from TpT. Graphic organizers and two weeks of lessons are provided to get your students writing and their creative juices flowing.
