Next, get students working on creating and writing a rebus valentine.
Students will learn all about the rebus style of writing. Then, they'll solve sample riddles before they brainstorm some ideas of their own.
Finally, they'll create their own Valentine message in the rebus-style of writing. They should write their message on the final copy paper provided.
After students have finished their pop art heart and rebus valentine, it's time to get creative. Students can create two different projects with their work.1. They can create a jumbo Valentine's Day card.2. Or, they can make a long Valentine's Day poster to display. VALENTINE'S DAY JUMBO CARDIf students will be creating a jumbo card, they'll each need an 18" x 11" piece of construction paper (along with their pop art heart and rebus valentine.)
Have them fold an 18" x 11" piece of construction paper in half. Then, they can add the pop art to the cover. Inside, they can glue the rebus message. You can "amp" up the valentine with scrapbook paper, stickers, cut-outs, and lots of doodles and drawings. Or, you might have students draw the pop art heart directly on the cover of the card.
VALENTINE'S DAY POSTER
Or, you might have students create a Valentine's Day poster with the pop art and rebus message. Again, students will need a piece of 18" x 11" paper and their completed work. On a piece of 18" x 11" paper, students can glue their heart and rebus.
Both projects make great gifts or classroom displays. We hope you and your students enjoy combining the pop art hearts and their Valentine's Day rebuses to create fun and festive projects!
