After that, we will brainstorm things that we "love" on chart paper. I always like to start with a nice "work bank" to get the creative juices flowing. Next, for prewriting, I plan to have students list BIG and little things they love. We have been working on categories, so this fits in nicely. I love when that happens. Here is the organizer I have created.
After a quick edit, I will have my young authors copy their lists in random order on a heart I plan to copy onto construction paper. Little things will be written small and BIG things will be written, well...LARGE, of course. Two heart halves have been included for you to trim and assemble to make a whole heart. I hope you and your students have a fantastic Valentine's Day AND an exciting 100 Day if, like me, they are close together. Looking for more fun Freebies like this one? Click below.
