Valentines and Adjectives: Little Love Letters

Improve vocabulary and classroom cooperation

Encourage friendship and community in your classes while improving vocabulary at the same time!

So much better than those common, perfunctory, pre-printed Valentines!

Little Love Letters includes a Matching Exercise (with KEY) for improving knowledge of many adjectives that explore character traits. It improves word power while also serving as written prompts for the personal Valentines.  The notes themselves give students a little nudge toward class cooperation and affirmation.  Complete, clear, and simple instructions and forms for busy teachers are added.

Yes, it really is invisible!

Enjoy the smiles!


Rhythm in Poetry



Rhythm in Poetry


Product Description

Teach students the importance of rhythm in poetry.

This lesson includes Emily Dickenson’s “If I Could Not Stop for Death” as well as Pearl Jam’s “Last Kiss” lyrics to discover (hands on) the importance of rhythm in poetry. Often, Language Arts teachers are weaker in this area because it is a little more technical than merely looking at the language.

The lesson includes:
– a detailed lesson plan for the teacher
– student notes (the poems) and activities
– an annotated copy of the poems as well as a comprehensive answer key

The entire unit contains 6 pages and it will most likely take two periods to complete.

This lesson is part of a larger unit:

MANY OF the products in my TpT store mention and support educational standards such as are used in various states, districts and also the Common Core State Standards written and developed by the National Governors’ Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers © Copyright 2010. The afore-mentioned do not endorse, sanction or approve this publication or any other publication/s by this author/publisher. Any use of “aligned with,” “aligned to” or the like simply mean in the supportive spirit of and again do not state or imply an endorsement.

REASONS TO CONSIDER PURCHASING FROM THIS STORE: 1. Tons of resources, 2. so much reusable over the years ahead, 3. buying it is more convenient than trying to make it yourself, 4. students enjoy the fun components they stay more on task learning, 5. most word searches have a format helping teach information with the words, 6. most resources’ have reading components tied into with other components making them more handy and helpful, 7. Attractive, professional looks, 8. Many resources with some Spanish to help ESL/ELL students to not be totally left out; 9. the prices are right; and, 10: you’ll love it your students stay busy learning like happy bees at the honey hive of knowledge, your classroom, even as they have in mine since these have been teacher and students-tested.

SPANISH used in some resources in my store is more the informal Latino Spanish actually used by most students from Latin America than the formal Castillian of Spain; so there are some differences in grammar, spelling and or vocabulary even as there are with American and British English.
