Celebrate Valentine’s Day in your classroom with this super fun, creative, and educational resource. This lesson begins with students reviewing and identifying different parts of speech. Then, with a partner, students will complete a Mad-Lib-Inspired activity for a Valentine’s Day History passage. The room will erupt in laughter as students read through their Valentine’s Day Wacky Libs. Of course, you’ll want to give them an opportunity to fill in the blanks with actual facts, so they’ll read through a nonfiction passage about Valentine’s Day to help them learn the truth about the day’s origins, traditions, and superstitions. Finally, students will answer comprehension questions about the passage to show their understanding. This lesson is always a huge success in my classroom. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the holiday and practice critical English Language Arts skills! It’s LOVEly!
