Product Description
Students love this Valentine's Day activity, and it is a great way to expose them to poetry.

As students do the found poem assignment, they are looking at published writing and evaluating it. They helps make them better reads and writers as they examine professional writing. Great modeling!

Students also love the concrete part. Some students gave their poem as gifts. Some got really create and went above and beyond with their shapes. I had lots of students asking me if they could take their poem home that day because they wanted to show their parents (these are 8th graders), and other students kept their poem on the outside of their binders for the rest of the year.

Students think they are doing a fun activity (and they are), but they are also exercising their reading and writing muscles. So awesome.
