This Valentine's Day Activity bundle contains three of my resources. You can view each of them and see additional thumbnails if you wish by clicking on the links provided.
1. Forming Compound Sentences (Valentine's Day)
After teaching how to form a compound sentence with two clauses joined together by a coordinating conjunction (with the necessary comma added), try this activity for Valentine's Day that will provide some great practice.
Students cut apart the halves (clauses) of compound sentences. They must then join them together to form seven compound sentences. It is also suggested that they use each coordinating conjunction only once (chart included).
Included pages are:
1. Directions Page
2. Compound Halves 1
3. Compound Halves 2
4. Coordinating Conjunctions List
5. Student Answer Form
6. Student Answer Key
Please view the thumbnails to see some sample pages.
This activity also works well in partners or individually, and it would be a great literacy center activity as well. The answer key allows students to self-check their work.
2. Website Sleuths (Valentine's Day)
I hope your students will enjoy learning about Valentine's Day with this ready to use "web search" resource!
After your students have completed the web search (featuring ten questions), they could then complete the graphic organizers to show facts they have learned in a decorative way.
On these organizers, students could:
a. record facts they learned in their web search
b. record facts NOT on the question sheet (other facts)
c. record facts they found most interesting
d. record facts from a different website provided by you
The graphic organizers can be colored and make a great holiday bulletin board display when done!
3. Valentine's Day Web Search Puzzle
Your students will enjoy using the provided website to become web detectives while learning about the history of Valentine's Day. This site focuses on the theory of Valentine and Emperor Claudius II's involvement in how Valentine's Day may have originated. The article information is kid-friendly.
It's fun to have students complete the puzzle just using the website, but a word list is provided for adaptation as needed. An answer key is also provided for your convenience.
