3. Ordered Pairs of Love Graphing Activity
Middle school math classrooms can all benefit from more graphing practice! Students are sure to tighten their grasp on ordered pairs with this activity, which tasks them with graphing several coordinates on a grid. Each graphed point contributes to a greater image, which will be revealed once they’re all graphed! They’ll enjoy coloring in the final image at the end of the activity, which you can even hang up in your classroom as a Valentine’s decoration.

Valentine’s Day English Language Arts Activities
1. Lovely Language Arts Printables
This resource is an adorable way for elementary students to practice their language arts knowledge! Parts of speech and synonyms/antonyms are crucial for any student to understand in order to read and write effectively, and this resource dives into those skills. One worksheet tasks them with matching synonyms, two sheets task them to identify specific parts of speech from a text, and the final one requires their coloring skills in order to show whether pairs of words are synonyms or antonyms. They won’t even notice they’re building their ELA knowledge while completing these worksheets!

This reading resource is a deep dive into reading skills that guides students in their critical thinking and comprehension. First, students will read “Ali’s Special Valentines”, a fictional short story about the holiday. Then, they’ll complete the accompanying worksheets, each of which task them with exploring the story in a different way. Each sheet focuses on a particular topic, including vocabulary, critical thinking and inferencing, story elements, summarization, building connections, and more!
