This reading follows a couple celebrating Valentine's Day together in a romantic restaurant. The preliminary paragraph is written from the first-person perspective of the young lady waiting for her boyfriend to arrive. The second portion includes a script between them as well as a short poem he has written her.
The reading is entirely in the present tense and includes a glossary of specialized Valentines vocabulary. The second page includes a reading comprehension section and a short writing assignment.
Activity ideas: students can read the story in pairs. They can then discuss how they plan to celebrate Valentine's Day or a past Valentine's Day. Students can also practice writing a short poem including some of the new vocabulary to perform for the class!
