Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to discuss friendship and respect! This package includes 2 language craftivities (compound words, adjectives, and similes) to keep your students engaged in learning in February! This package also includes a guided explanatory essay describing the character traits of a best friend. You will also find 12 friendship vocabulary word cards and a word work dictionary (parts of speech, definition, alphabetical order, and sentence writing).
All of the activities can be implemented during reading workshop or Daily 5 centers. They could also be implemented during or as whole group instruction. Some sample pages are included, though you may come up with some unique ways for students to use their creativity in language and writing.
