A few years ago I ran across a Valentine rhyming book for the kids to make for a valentine gift for parents or just for a valentine book. I have used it for many years now, and have no idea where I originally saw it.
The title page is This Valentine
Each page there after says p. 1 - This valentine is red and small
p. 2 - This valentine is the BIGGEST OF ALL!
I have the children trace a big heart shape and cut out for this page
p. 3 - This valentine is glittered and glued
p. 4 - This valentine is shiney and blue
We are skipping this page and putting page 3 right before page 7.
I had planned to use eagle brand milk and blue food color to paint
the heart, but I usually use a shiny blue paper and have them glue pieces
on the heart. (to many snow days have cancelled this page :()
p. 5 - This valentine is covered in ribbon and lace
p. 6 - This one has a Funny Face!
p. 7 - Ths Valentine is made just for you, and it says "I LOVE YOU"
Obiviously each page is decorated by the child. I have made the words for each page in different fonts to make the book. The children enjoy it as well as the parents. I do many things and am attracted to ideas that create books just for the great literacy connection they make.
also, I wanted to share a really fun Valentine book that I have use since I found it at the Half Price book store a few years ago.
