This is one of my favorite writing activities. I often use this activity around Valentine's Day because the lesson involves candy, but more importantly, I have typically taught the skills necessary to complete this lesson, and it is a fun refresher before the Texas State Assessment in Writing. This lesson focuses on the use of creativity, sensory details, vivid verbs, adjectives, and writing a strong introduction. In addition, my students love creating a new look for the Hershey's Kiss and enjoy getting to do something a little different.
*I enlarge the kiss as large as I can and copy onto card stock.
