If you'll be my Valentine...

I love Valentine's Day in first grade. I found this adorable book today and couldn't resist picking it up for the 14th.

If You'll Be My Valentine is written by Cynthia Rylant and is a book of valentine poems written by a little boy to different loves in his life. I created a writing activity as a response to literature and I can't wait to see who my kiddos decide to write to!

If youll be my valentine writing connection

I'm going to have them draw a picture of the person they're writing to in the heart frame and write their poems on the lines below.

I put the hearts on the end of the second and fourth lines to remind my students that the last words in those lines should rhyme. :)
