|lesson plan ideas|
Yeah, I know.... I'm not teaching right now, but if I were, I would be planning my Valentine's Day lessons. Valentine's Day has always been one of my favorite days during the school year. The kids love it and I love it... everything red, white, and pink. It's just one of those feel good holidays. Here are some cute FREE February printables I found, or more specifically, Valentine's Day. Enjoy!
February Printable Bookmarks- Let the kids color them for a morning arrival activity and then laminate them. This is actually a fun activity to do at the beginning of every month.
February Printable Acrostic Poem - Use with dictionary skills. The kids can use the dictionary to make sure their words are spelled correctly.

Box of Chocolate Adjectives- Explain to your students that you are going to give them each a piece of candy. They should write as many descriptive words and phrases as they can about the candy. Remind them to use all their senses when they are writing. You could even have them write the five senses on their paper and write the words under the correct one. After the students have completed this activity, have each one read their words and have the class try to guess which piece of chocolate the student had.
Candy Heart Sentences- Have students make up sentences or paragraphs around the messages on the candy hearts. For example:
"I do" want you to be my valentine!
You are such a "sweet one!"
Have student glue the candies on in the proper places in the sentences (remind them that these candies ARE NOT for eating!)
They can even try to write whole paragraphs using the hearts.
