If you are looking for some meaningful, no prep literacy ideas, then you may love these activities! The activities are quick and easy, yet they keep your students interested in learning during the chilly weeks of February.

This 40 page February Literacy Activity Packet includes:

Page 1: Title Page

Page 2: What’s Missing? Rhyming Activity- Children must cut and paste the correct rhyming words into the sentences provided.

Page 3: What’s Missing?- Children must cut and paste the correct words into the sentences provide.

Pages 4 and 5: Score with Four (played like the popular game Connect Four)- Children take turns rolling a die to see how many lines they may draw on the grid. Each time a child closes a box, he/she writes a word wall word (or any assigned list of words) in the box. The student with the most words at the end of the game wins.

Pages 6 and 7: Color It, Count It, and Graph It- Children must color each word following a code, count how many times each word appears, and graph the results.

Page 8: Secret Words- Children must use the alphabet/number code to figure out the 10 mystery words associated with the month of February.

Page 9: Word Building Activity- Children cut out the letters that spell “February”, arrange the letters to make as many different words as they can with those letters, and write each word in the appropriate column.

Page 10: Word Building Activity- Children cut out the letters that spell “One Hundred Days”, arrange the letters to make as many different words as they can with those letters, and write each word in the appropriate column.


Page 11: Word Building Activity- Children cut out the letters that spell “Valentine”, arrange the letters to make as many different words as they can with those letters, and write each word in the appropriate column.

Page 12: Word Building Activity- Children cut out the letters that spell “President”, arrange the letters to make as many different words as they can with those letters, and write them in the appropriate column.

Page 13: Cut and Paste Rhyming Word Match- Children cut and paste each word next to its rhyming partner.

Page 14: Cupid’s Word Hunt: The teacher asks the students to search for words in their books that contain certain letters, blends, or digraphs (example: if you are working on /ch/, you may ask children to look for words that have the “ch” or “tch” spelling) and record them on the activity sheet. (You may also allow students to use word walls, charts, posters, or various reading materials.) The students will then choose 2 of the words they have written and draw, color, and label them in the boxes provided.

Page 15: Write About It! This page contains story starters and ideas for the students to write creative stories. (Writing pages are included on pages 33-38 in this packet.)

Page 16: Compound Mix-Up- Children must cut apart the mixed up compound words, rearrange them to form real compound words, and paste them on the activity sheet. (After cutting the words apart, I had my class arrange all of the words with the asterisks on one side of their desks, and arrange the remaining words on the other side. The words with the asterisks are the first part of the compound words. Or... You may also have the children color the first column of words one color, and the second column of words another color. This helped my intervention group while building compound words because they separated the words by color after they cut them out.)

Page 17: Nouns and Verbs- Children are to read the words, cut them out, sort them into the correct columns labeled Nouns/Verbs, and paste them onto the activity sheet.

Page 18: Fact or Opinion- Students look at the picture provided, read the sentences on the bottom of the page, and cut, sort, and paste the sentences into the correct columns labeled Fact/Opinion.

Page 19: Pick A Box Partner Game- February Words- Students must roll a die, read a word from that column correctly, and color it. The student with the most boxes at the end of the game wins.

Page 20: Pick A Box Partner Game- 100 Words- Students must roll dice, read a word from that column correctly, and color it. The student with the most boxes at the end of the game wins.


Pages 21, 22, 23, and 24: Mixed Up and Fixed Up- Students cut, arrange, and paste the words to create a complete sentence. The children then write the sentence and draw a picture to go with the sentence.

Page 25: Building Fluency with February Tic, Tac, Toe Partner Game- Partners take turns correctly reading the sentences and marking the box with an X or an O. The player with 3 marks in a row wins. (You may also laminate the sheets and use dry erase markers or pennies and nickels to mark the boxes.)

Page 26: Write and Stamp Your Words- Students copy 10 of their spelling, vocabulary, or word wall words (containing a maximum of 6 letters each) on the paper and then stamp the words in the boxes.

Pages 33-38: Writing pages meant for Creative Writing Activities- Each lined page has the same black and white border that may be decorated by the student. Page 38 is meant to be the second page of the writing activity and has no graphic. All other pages have various colorful February graphics.
