Inking Thoughts: Valentine Rhymes

What rhyming story could you draft?
  • Putting Your Thoughts on Paper: Take a moment to read these Valentines. What do you notice?
  • Gathering materials: family learning journals, pencils, colored pencils, crayons
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Reading and Writing Connection: Guide them as they draft their rhyme. Older learners could write a 3 stanza rhyme by using one of the Valentine’s on the slide above… then adding two stanzas to finish a story.
  • Drafting responses: Allow each family member to write their thoughts (10 min). Encourage the youngest members to draw their thoughts and assign someone to be their scribe.
  • Encourage everyone to sketch and color their own “doodles” around their rhyme.
  • Finally: Discuss: Let each family member share their “Valentine Rhyme“ creation. Remind them that respectful listeners make eye contact with the person sharing without interrupting.
