Valentines Lesson

Hi there, thanks for stopping by the blog. It can be hard to find lesson content for St. Valentine so I decided to do a bit of rooting online and compile two lessons. One for the Junior levels and one for the Senior levels which you can tailor to your needs.

Please scroll down to find Senior lessons at the top and Junior lesson at the end of this post.

I usually use this kind of lesson for History, Religion, Music, and Art for the Junior classes. There are also opportunities to link Valentines with Green Schools or the Environment in Geography if you were to use figures easily found online about wastage on St. Valentines Day. It can also be linked to Geography if we look at how Valentine’s day is celebrated around the world.

Here are some ideas, below you will find lesson ideas, PowerPoints, Videos, and Worksheets, I hope it helps.

If you like the blog, why not follow it, or like it on facebook to get new lessons regularly.

Lesson ideas for 3rd – 6th Class if adapted

  1. Introduction

Show an image of marmite and valentines and ask your class what the two images have in common:

love-and-marmite-valentines-lessonvalentinemarmite-404_685611c

I would use this to create a discussion:

  • What do you think the message is about Valentines? Discuss with your friends.
  • Why do you think some people like Valentines and why others do not?
  • Who might benefit from Valentines?
  • Have you ever heard of St. Valentine?
  • Why do you think there is a day named after him?

 2.  Explain that we will be learning about St. Valentine and create a WILF chart about St. Valentine (chart from https://kpike92.wordpress.com/2015/03/16/introducing-walt-wilf-and-tib/

wilf

I would put my main objective here: Two new pieces of information about Who Saint Valentine is? Why we celebrate this day etc.

3. I would then complete a KWL chart, link to chart here: http://tweenteaching.blogspot.ie/2012/08/kwl-chart.html

Song about a chick

Nursery Rhyme

nursery rhyme about chick

Rhyme
Come my chicks,
It’s time for bed,
that’s what mother hen said,
But first I’ll count you just to see,
If you have all come back to me,
Chick 1, chick 2, chick 3, Oh dear!
Chick 4, chick 5, yes you’re all here!
