Valentine Preposition

Valentine Preposition Activity

The idea is simple. Take a heart and an arrow, two iconic Valentine symbols, then design and match the shapes according to the language on the card. You can introduce this concept with concrete materials such as a wooden heart and a plastic arrow, or felt hearts and arrows.

There is a lot of room for creativity here. Printing out the cards allows the child to carry work home with him, which is often a good thing.

Language Activity Supplies

There is a lot of possibility with materials. I created a document that includes control cards, two-part cards using the same language, and the necessary shape cutouts (arrows and hearts). {Print out the document.}

  • Printer (optional)
  • Laminator (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick

Preposition Activity Approach

  • Print out the pdf document
  • Cut and laminate control cards to assist in giving a lesson
  • Cut out and laminate two-part cards for a permanent shelf work to use with a felt heart and arrow, for example
  • Print copies of the two-part cards
  • Print out the shape cutouts
  • Prepare the cutouts ahead of time, or have the child cut out the shapes
  • Supply the child with glue and have him glue the heart and arrow in the appropriate manner as indicated by the language on the card
  • Create a booklet for the child to display or take home
