Valentine's Day Grammar Activity - Editing Errors in Cupid's Social Media Posts: This Valentine's Day grammar activity allows students to edit grammar, spelling, and punctuation in a fun and modern way! Students will have the chance to read posts that Cupid has made on his social media to find errors, correct them, and give reasons for their corrections! This activity is a fun twist on traditional grammar correction!

This is included in our best-selling bundle:

Included In This Valentine's Day Grammar Activity:

➡️ 14 Social Media Valentine's Day Grammar Task Cards: Share these 14 social media task cards with students that you can print for students to edit. Each of the cards includes a Valentine's Day-inspired social media post by Cupid, and students must locate and correct errors within the post.

➡️ Task Card Answer Key: After students have completed the task cards, share these print-ready answer keys that provide reasoning for all edits and make reviewing or grading your students' answers easy as can be.

➡️ Presentation Answer Key Review Slides: Review the task cards with students using the included 15-slide PowerPoint presentation. Each of the slides includes all the explanations for the errors, so you can easily review the answers with your students.

➡️ Smaller Version of the Social Media Posts: An option is also provided without the space for students to write their answers, so you can use this resource in multiple ways! Have students complete the work in a notebook or add these cards to a station.

How To Use This Valentine's Day Grammar Activity:

This resource can be used in a few different ways:

1. Valentine's Day Edit Of The Day: Introduce one of the updates to your class each day for the 14 days leading up to Valentine's Day. Everyone receives a copy and makes the edits and reasoning on their own (or you can do it in groups or pairs). Then you can use the PowerPoint to go over the update together as a class and come to a consensus.

2. Valentine's Day Writing Centers: Include a packet of the task cards at a writing center where students can choose which updates to work on. Edits can be made in their writing notebook rather than on the sheet. You can also make an answer key booklet for them to use after they are done!

3. Pair Work: Give each pair of students a Valentine's Day Cupid update task card and have them complete it together. Then each pair can present the update to the class, and share what edits they made. The class can give further suggestions.

4. Group Work: Give a group of three or four students one of the Valentine's Day Cupid updates and have them come to an agreement about the edits to make and the rewritten sentence. The group can present the update to the class when they are finished.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was a great resource to use for stations on Valentine's Day. The activities were engaging while also being rigorous.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My students started this work on the first of February. The interest level was high because it was short and quick to use, yet covered major skills we needed refreshing on. Thanks!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I used these for Bell Ringers during the month of Feb! Worked out great, and the kids loved reading the tweets :)
