Third graders celebrated Valentine's Day with a day of LOVEly activities! The class favorite was a funny Valentine Mad Lib story. Laughter filled the room with hilarious renditions of the story, and they initiated their own share time to read their stories aloud. The students thought this was just a fun party activity, but I secretly had them practicing grammar by reviewing parts of speech! Sharing their stories is a great way to practice oral language skills as we refine and develop confident public speakers.
