Valentines Day Themed Class Book Freebie – Love Is…

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, finding fun ways to tie in the love to classroom reading and writing is so much fun. Here is a free Valentine’s Day-themed writing activity for your kindergarten, first or second grade class. Create a class book together with everyone contributing a page.

This cute class book is titled, “Love Is…” and that’s the beauty of it. It’s simple and it allows your students to complete the sentence starter with their own ideas. You can read any favorite book that ties in and use it as a jump off point for creating your own class book.

If you don’t want to start with a book, you can also do a brainstorming session or start an anchor chart of words that students connect to love and caring for one another This class book activity can also be left for a substitute teacher.

Ready to make it for your class? Let’s get to it!

How to make this class book

  1. First, download the freebie file below
  2. Then print the cover with a color printer or onto colored paper. Write in your teacher name to create the cover and laminate for durability.
  3. Select the page style you like for your class and print one page for the number of students you have (and perhaps an extra or two).

That’s all it takes to create this book. You can introduce the activity any way you like! Let your students draw, color and add words to describe what love is.

Simply bind all of the students’ pages together after the front cover in order to finish it off as a class book.

When you’ve completed this book, be sure to read it aloud to the class. Place it in your classroom library center so kiddos can reread it on their own. You can keep it in there all year!

This idea was inspired by Teri who originally shared this idea on her blog. Since her version is no longer available we wanted to recreate a similar version to use with our own students.
