It’s that time of the year again! Happy Valentine’s Day, and welcome to our first freebie roundup. The world sure has changed a lot in the last few years, so in this inaugural post, we decided to take a look at what’s out there for Valentine’s Day that’s free and low-stress. We’ll be covering free Valentine’s printables in English, Spanish, and bilingual, so feel free to skip around to the section that works best for your learning plans this year.
You’ve heard it said that there’s nothing really free in life. And, while it’s tempting to investigate that philosophical box of chocolates, suffice to say that some, but not all, of the freebies in this list may require you to create a free account or to give your email address in exchange for a freebie.
In the case of Teachers Pay Teachers and Made by Teachers in particular, there are literally thousands of freebies on the sites but you do have to create free accounts in order to access them. You’ll find some of those resources mixed in with others below.
As of the date of this post, we are not affiliated with any of the creators or websites that are linked, nor do we receive any affiliate compensation for linking or sharing them. Worded another way: The opinions are our own, and this is a list of freebies, so… Please note, however, that we cannot be responsible for the content or printables on others’ sites other than to say that we found them, thought they were awesome and/or used them, and hope they work great for you!
What are TPT and MBT?
Drowning in abbreviations yet? Never fear! These two are super easy and fairly ubiquitous in the printables world. TPT stands for Teachers Pay Teachers, and MBT is an abbreviation for Made by Teachers. They’re both giant aggregate sites where teachers, authors, artists, and others sell their printables and other materials, such as clipart. Think Etsy® for education. [Etsy has tons of fantastic educational printables, too, but as far as I know, none of them are free there.]
As mentioned above, both sites require you to create an account to access freebies or to buy resources, but there are so many free and low-cost resources on both sites that they are, at least in our opinion, definitely worth creating free user accounts.
You’ll find three categories of Valentine’s printables below: Spanish, English, and bilingual. We tried to find printables that will fit nearly any classroom and learning situation, but if you think something should be added, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
Spanish – Free Valentine’s Printables
Did you know there’s more than one way to say Valentine’s Day in Spanish? If you’d like to know a few other ways, learn some new vocabulary, and download a free worksheet geared for early Spanish learners, you can check out our Valentine’s Day blog post here.
You may see the abbreviation CEFR below. CEFR stands for Common European Framework of Reference. Basically, it’s a European categorization system that helps people understand what level a text, worksheet, or other item is at. If you happen to be learning or teaching foreign language, CEFR is kind of like a rating system for content. If your students are beginners, you might look for A1-A2 materials; whereas, if you’re an advanced language student, you might look for teachers who can help you at the C1-C2 level.
We’ve included the CEFR levels just in case they’re useful to you. But we also clarified what the levels mean so that you can determine what might work for your situation without them.
