We have a discount store in our community called, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet. They have a huge book section that has a wonderful selection of discounted books for all ages. I visited the store in January and came across a stack of The Night Before Valentine’s Day by Natasha Wing. Each book was only $1.00 so I picked up enough so that I could give a copy to each of my first graders for Valentine’s Day. I then decided to make a few activities to go along with the story.
As you know, Valentine’s Day is a very exciting day for our friends, so I made these activities so that the children could work on them independently. We used the rhyming activity and wordsearch as a competitive game and used the drawing page as an art “competition”. Just something fun to help us through the day! :)
