Valentine Cinquain/Love is...

Here are some cute Valentine Cinquains we did this week! I let the kids choose a word that related to Valentine's Day for their topic....(chocolate, cards, Cupid, hearts, love, etc.)

A Cinguain is one of the easiest poems to have your kids write...only 5 lines...

1. Topic ( Ice cream)
2. 2 Adjectives ( smooth, delicious)
3. 3 verbs ending in "ing" ( eating, enjoying, tasting)
4. 4 letter phrase (in a waffle cone)
5. Synonym for topic or noun ( dessert)


We also wrote paragraphs on "Love is.." We have a 5 step paragraph that we teach as part of our curriculum so we followed those rules...


Both of these projects will go in their 2nd grade portfolio :)

Happy February!
