This is a fun activity for Valentine's Day. Students try to create as many words as they can from the letters in the word Valentine. Some examples would be (ten, vent, vine, etc.) This can work for many age groups, but would be most effective for Grades 1-4. Depending on their reading level you could challenge them to find the longest word or the most 3 letters words. This is my first item. I know they will get better. Bear with me. Thank you.
