A while back I posted a writing activity for the wintertime, including a winter poem. Today, I’m doing the same thing for Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day is a day for love and caring – not just for couples, but for friends, family, and relatives as well. So I wrote this poem for you to use in your classroom or with your homeschool group. It’s not a very deep poem – just a few stanzas about celebrating Valentine’s Day in February, and keeping the caring going throughout the year.
After you’ve read the poem in class, or had your students read the poem, there is a short writing activity for them to complete. Using this writing activity, your students can analyze the poem and discuss how they felt about it. You can also have them write their own Valentine’s Day poems as an additional activity.
Valentine’s Day Close Reading
If you’re interested in more fun reading activities for your classroom, I’ve created a Valentine’s Day Close Reading packet, with reading passages and activities for your kids to complete in class. If you check it out, be sure to let me know what you think! I always appreciate the feedback.
I hope you have a wonderful month of February, and a terrific Valentine’s Day!
