One of my absolute favorite books to read around Valentine's Day is The Day it Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond. This book companion is full of meaningful and interactive comprehension activities, 2 adorable crafts based on the book, writing lesson ideas and writing prompt pages, vocabulary word activities from the text, phonics review pages and word work station idea, and a few other ideas sprinkled in to make your Valentine's Day one of the most memorable yet!
