WHY VALENTINE WRITING PROMPTS?

Writing Prompts help students become fluent, organized, confident, and skilled thinkers and writers. Use Valentine's Day Writing Prompts as Warm-Up Work, Bell Ringers, Literacy Centers, Quick Writes, Class-Enders, or for Writer’s Workshop . . . or leave as a lifesaver for Substitute Teachers!

From red roses to chocolate and Cupid to card-exchanges, each element of Valentine's Day is based on fascinating facts and fun trivia! These 26 worksheets contain a brief summary of 26 fascinating facts, trivia, and origins of Valentine traditions, with 52 writing prompts that celebrate all things Valentine's and commemorate the history behind the holiday.

Use one worksheet a day in February, or use all 26 on February 14 . . . versatility and flexibility is built in!
