I used this with my language groups that were working on building more complex sentences and using more advanced vocabulary.
Object of the game: Be the player to get the most points in a language challenge round, so you can steal someone’s heart!
Directions: Collect pictures from google images (type in Valentine’s day, Valentine’s day party, animals on Valentine’s day, etc.) Print hearts on page 4 and laminate for durability. Each player gets 4 hearts.
Show the students a valentine’s themed photo and have them write 1-3 sentences about the picture trying to get as many language concepts in their sentences as they can (see scoring card on page 3). Use the visual reminder cards (pages 5-7) to help students with using transition words, conjunctions, adjectives, idioms in their sentences. The therapist/teacher then “scores” each players sentences. Whoever gets the most points for the round gets to “steal a players heart”. The player with the most hearts at the end of all the rounds wins!
