 It's Valentine's Day

by Jack Prelutsky

It's Valentine's Day. And in the street
There's freezing rain, and slush, and sleet.
The wind is fierce. The skies are gray.
I don't think I'll go out today.
But here inside the weather's warm.
There is no trace of wind or storm.
And you just made the morning shine.
You said you'd be my Valentine.

I Presenter (the teacher): 

The English,  believe that on February 14, nature turns toward spring and for birds the season of mating games starts. The old English saying goes: "On Valentine's day all birds in the air are connected in pairs.

Many more proverbs are relevant to the day of love. I propose a small contest of proverbs and idioms about love. Can you translate them correctly?

(Competition No. 1   Contest of proverbs. The teacher reads the statement written on the paper heart and then gives it to the pupil who raised his hand and gave the correct answer the first. The owner of the most number of hearts receives a prize. )

II Presenter (the pupil):  In ancient Rome, Emperor Claudius found out that men did not want to be recruited into his army because they wanted to stay with their wives and children. Therefore, he banned all marriages. For Roman people, it was a big shock… they continued to fall in love and to dream about a happy family. The young priest called Valentine started to marry people secretly. When Claudius II knew about it, he had Valentine bitten to death. Later on, for his bravery and dedication to love, priest Valentine gained the title “Saint”.

III Presenter (the pupil):  Another legend said that young priest Valentine helped christians to escape Roman prisons and, and after some time   he got arrested too. Valentine had the ability to heal people and  he cured the  jailer's blind daughter. After she could see perfectly well, young people fell in love. Before his execution Valentine wrote her a farewell letter just, signing: “From your Valentine”. From that very moment on, this phrase gained immortality.

I Presenter (the teacher):  As we are talking about lovers, I suggest you listen to a beautiful poem. This is William Shakespeare's sonnet 130(two students read the verse: in English and in Ukrainian)

Picture 5

Картинки по запросу иллюстрация к 130 сонету шекспира



My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;

Coral is far more red than her lips' red;

If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun*;

If hairs be wires**, black wires grow on her head.

I have seen roses damasked***, red and white,

But no such roses see I in her cheeks,

And in some perfumes is there more delight

Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.

I love to hear her speak, yet well I know

That music hath a far more pleasing sound;

I grant I never saw a goddess go -

My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.

And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare****

As any she belied with false compare.*****

Sonnet 130 by William Shakespeare в оригинале

Її очей до сонця не рівняли,
Корал ніжнійший за її уста,
Не білосніжні пліч овали,
Мов з дроту чорного коса густа.
Троянд багато зустрічав я всюди,
Та на її обличчі не стрічав,
І дише так вона, як дишуть люди,
А не конвалії між диких трав.
І голосу її рівнять не треба
До музики, милішої мені,
Не знаю про ходу богинь із неба,
А кроки милої — цілком земні.
І все ж вона — найкраща поміж тими,
Що славлені похвалами пустими.
Переклад Д. Паламарчука


I Presenter (the teacher): A very nice poem, is not it? The proverb says: «It is not only necessary to love, it is necessary to say so». I invite team members to take part in the competition for the best compliment to a loved one. Now you should name all the sweet words you know.

(Competition No. 2 The participants should approach the girls standing at a certain distance uttering a compliment at every step. The one who comes closest wins.)

II Presenter (the pupil):  I want to tell you about the symbols of St. Valentine's Day.

Picture 6

Картинки по запросу картинка купидонаКартинки по запросу картинка алая роза

Once upon a time, people believed that love was hidden in the heart. Therefore, in our time, the heart is a symbol of love and Valentine's Day.

Cupid, the Son of Venus, the goddess of love. He can make a man fall in love with a shot of one of his magic arrows.

Red rose. Rose is the favorite flower of Venus, the goddess of love. Red is the color of strong feelings. A red rose is a flower of love.

Doves and lovebirds. Traditionally, they  symbolize love. Pigeons do not change a partner all their lives. 

In Africa, colorful parrots are called birds. When they meet in pairs, they sit very close together.

II Presenter (the pupil): 

  Rings. In most countries, people exchange rings during an engagement and a wedding. 


In the past times, if a man wanted to marry a woman, he "asked for her hand." The hand became a symbol of love and marriage. Soon gloves also became a symbol of marriage.


Hundreds of years ago, women had lacy handkerchiefs. If a lady liked a man, she dropped her handkerchief, and a man next to her had to raise it and return to the woman.  Soon lace became fully associated with a love story.

I Presenter (the teacher):  For Valentine's Day, people send a valentine to their beloved. Valentine is a card in the shape of a heart in which the words of love are written. Typically, valentines are not signed. Texts can be quite different: lyrical, sad or funny. I suggest listening to some verses. While we will listen to the poem, I invite some pupils to participate in the contest. You have to change the set of letters in order to get be the word.

(Competition No. 3 Prince Charming. Three pairs of participants are given 3 rolls of colored toilet paper. The boys should "dress" their partners in a paper dress while the melody sounds. Then the beauties should walk along the catwalk. The girl in the best dress and her prince get lollipops.)

(Pupils recite short verses)



  • By Jessica Blade Your Name 

    I wrote your name in the sky,
    but the wind blew it away.
    I wrote your name in the sand,
    but the waves washed it away.
    I wrote your name in my heart,
    and forever it will stay.


  • by Robert Burns

    My love is like a red red rose
    That’s newly sprung in June;
    My love is like the melodie
    That’s sweetly play’d in tune.

    So fair (are you) art thou, my (beautiful darling, sweetheart) bonnie lass,
    So deep in love am I;
    And I will love (you) thee still, my dear,
    Till a’ the seas (gone) gang dry.



III Presenter (the pupil):

 Your smile

Each Day Your Smile Becomes My Morning Star

Каждый день Ваша улыбка становится моей утренней звездой

Each day your smile becomes my morning star.

Як зіронька ясна твоя у сішка сяє


I look at you and then my feelings shine.

Дивлюсь на тебе і душа моя палає

From you I learn far more than words or numbers:

Тебе все більше хочу пізнавати

You’re the book that someday will be mine.

Ти книга ту що хочу прочитати.

You’re the one whose love my love of learning

Ти та , що світ новий мені відкрила

Will one day trace in its ancestral line.

Це завдяки тобі тепер  я маю крила!

For all the ways you help me grow towards beauty,

Будь валентиною моєю, я благаю

I ask you please to be my Valentine.

Єдиною на все життя. Я так тебе кохаю!


 Thank you very much for participating and up to new meetings. Happy Valentine's Day!
