Valentine's Day Literature Ideas
Purchase an inexpensive set
of children's valentines. Cover the front
and back of each
valentine with clear self stick paper, leaving a 1/2 inch
around the edges. Use a hole punch to punch a hole in the
left hand corner of each valentine. For reinforcement,
attach small squares
of self stick paper over the holes and repunch them. Fasten the valentines together
with a metal
ring. Then set out the valentine book and let the children
have fun "reading" it.
Make a group book using red, pink,
white, and lavender construction paper pages
cut into heart
shapes. Ask the children to think about people (or pets)
Have each child dictate an ending for this
sentence: "I love _______" Print
child's completed sentence on a separate heart shaped page and let
child add an illustration with crayons or felt tip
markers. Cover the pages with
clear self stick paper.
Then fasten them together by punching holes in the upper
corners and inserting a metal ring or a loop of yarn. Let
the children "read"
their pages to one another before
placing the love book in the book corner.
