This week the focus is on Valentine’s Day and I wanted to make sure I found something for everyone. Make sure you check out Mightybook.com. It’s my favorite of all of them. I hope you enjoy this issue and find something you can use in your classroom.
1. Math-Flower Power– Here is an info graphic that you could use in class. Have students “read” the graphics. Create questions for students to solve or have them create the math questions using the info graphic. There is another info graphic one here from Cleveland.com.
2. Reading -Mightybook.com– This “book” is made up of old Valentines that are very punny. They are the Valentines I remember sending out to my classmates in school. The book reads it to you and there are sound effects. For those students who need reading practice, you might want to mute it and let them read it for themselves. After the “book” there are puzzles (6, 12, and 24 pieces) and a match game.
3. Language Arts- Lanternfish– This site has “worksheets” with a Valentines Day focus. They include things like a crossword, word search, rhymes, and cards. Maybe great for your Valentines Day Party afternoon.
4. Social Studies– History.com has a great article about the history of St. Valentine. Also on the side there are links for Valentines Day facts and quotes and many more topics.
5. For the little ones - Starfall.com-They can make a Valentine with the little candy hearts. The site reads the hearts to them and students choose one from each page. At the end they can print out their creation.
6. Bonus-Marks-English-school.com– There are some games on this page but I found them hard to use. What I did like was the printable cards. You can customize or create one and print a bunch.
I hope you can find something you can use in this newsletter. If you do, please make a comment.
