❤️ Why We Love It

Valentine’s Day is all about fun, love, and friendship (and candy too!), and we love incorporating educational activities into holiday fun!

This Valentine’s Day word search is designed to be a meaningful and engaging activity that students will enjoy, all while practicing important literacy skills!

Students will practice reading and finding 20 different words. This helps improve visual discrimination as well as spelling and decoding skills!

👉 Not only do I use this in my classroom, but I tuck a printed copy into each of my daughter’s school valentines, so her friends get to take home a fun activity along with their candy!
