My name is Terry-Lynn and I am a middle years teacher in the Canadian prairies. I decided to start this blog because there is a lack of truly Canadian resources and perspective on the net. Thus the purpose of this blog is to critique websites and generally talk about my experiences as a Canadian teacher.

Valentine's Day Activities From My TpT Store

With less than a month until Valentine's Day, I thought I would link people to some of the materials I posted in my store http://teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Terry-lynn-Mcleod-2 .

Valentine's Day Language Arts Activities
This is a collection of Language Arts activities with a Valentine's Day theme. It is good as enrichment activity for grade 5 and 6 or as an anchor activity for grades 7 and 8. Included in the collection is an acrostic poem template, brainstorm, alphabetizing, wordsearch, missing letter, word scramble, sentence writing, and colouring pages.

Valentine's Day Math Warm Up
This is a math warm up for middle years students, to take place on or right before Valentine's Day. There are 2 parts to this warm up. "Mind Math" is a set of 10 basic operation questions to be completed by the students without a calculator. "Problem" is 1 multi-step problem with a Valentine's Day theme. This warm up should take between 5 to 10 minutes. I included an answer key with the worksheet.

Valentines Day Research Project
With this project, middle years students develop internet reseach skills to write an expository paragraph on either Valentine's Day trivia or origins. The objective of the lesson is for students to practice the reading strategy of prioritizing so to create a product. Students prioritize internet information to create a paragraph. This download includes an assignment sheet for students and two graphic organizers.

Valentines Day Writing Activities
This is a collection of Middle Years writing activities following the theme of Valentine's Day. These activities follow the 6 traits of writing- Word Choice, Voice, Conventions, Ideas, Organization, and Sentence Fluency. There are 9 writing activities and one tic-tac-toe board.

Valentines Day Bake Sale Plan
Need to make a little money for your class's yearend trip? Why not have a bake sale. This plan will help you organize a bake sale. It includes a step by step plan, shopping and supply lists, letter to parents, brainstorm list and sign up sheet.
