Five ready-to-go engaging Valentine's Day activities for the ESL classroom! English language learners need to learn about special days in the United States, and Valentine's Day is one of those special days that can prompt some intriguing discussions!
This assortment of activities was written for adult learners of English but would also be appropriate for middle school or high school students depending on their level. These activities would best be used with learners that are at an intermediate or advanced level of English.
The assortment includes 4 shorter activities with one more extensive lesson plan. Below is a description:
Valentine's Day acrostic.
"Is Your Heart Full?" writing and discussion activity
"English Expressions of Love" handout with discussion prompts
"Write a Letter to Someone You Love" writing activity with template and example
A "Real-Life Fairy Tale" news article and video with several accompanying activities
The news article and video is the more extensive lesson plan. It is an article and video of one of the sweetest love stories I've ever seen! Accompanying activities include a vocabulary builder, comprehension questions, questions for more critical thinking/discussion and a grammar/sentence writing activity.
