In the spirit of the upcoming heart-filled holiday this next week, I have worked to create a writing activity that embraces this spirit of love for others!
Students will start by working to brainstorm a list of people that they love.
When they finish their list, they will select one of the people that they love as the inspiration for their writing piece. They will then use a second organizer to work to share three reasons why they love this individual.
Students will then use these three reasons (or more if they'd like!) to write a piece about their special person and create a corresponding illustration! They could even bring in a photo of them with the loved one to paste on as well!
To add a little decorative flair, have your students glue their writing and illustration to a piece of large construction paper and cut and glue hearts of different colors and sizes to the finished product!
Then, the most important part of all - ask your students to be sure to read their piece to the person that they chose to write about to "share the love"!

Happy Valentine's Day!
