What Teachers Are Saying About This Valentine's Day Writing Assignment:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The students really loved this activity I even had a few break up with their bad habits. It was really engaging and we had a lot of fun with this plus it allowed us to talk about letter structure and for some working on their vocabulary. Have used it twice and will be using it again.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Talk about engagement! This was so fun to use in my class. I was hesitant because it focuses on relationships, but my 8th graders took this assignment and RAN with it! I will definitely be doing this each year!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was one of the most fun activities that we did all year. Students had so much fun "breaking up" with each other. Some made up people and some used their own friends etc. Perfect Valentine's Day activity.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Presto plans are my go-to plans whenever I want to shake things up and get students excited. Great graphics and engaging activities to keep students learning. 100 % recommend!
