Here’s a very versatile, quick, easy & super-fun
writing prompt craftivity that you can use for:
* Valentine’s Day
(Great for a party day activity.)
* Mother’s Day
* Father’s Day
* Grandparents Day
or Veteran’s Day
“Thank You! We Appreciate You!” notes
* “Get Well”
or sympathy notes for an ill or grieving classmate
* “Just a Note” to a friend OR… Whatever else you may think of.
If your kiddos are like mine, they will absolutely LOVE making these, so be prepared and run off extra
copies for early finishers
, and students who ask to “Please…” make another one.
Woo Hoo! They are that addicting & fun
; plus “print & go”
easy-peasy for you.
I think one of the reasons they are so popular, is that the envelope unfolds to be a heart-shaped message.
I added the 4, “Confidential”, “Top Secret!” & “For Your Eyes Only”
labels, to add to the fun.
Nothing like writing a “secret” message
to get students excited
Works for many age groups
— from preschool (who can draw a picture and dictate a sentence, or simply write “I love you”) all the way to upper elementary, who can use the blank template.
Great for Daily 5
or your writing block, and simple as a generic lesson for your “Sub Tub”
There are 8 graphic options
on the front of the “envelope”.
These templates come in a horizontal AND vertical pattern.
For PK kiddos, demonstrate how to fold the “envelope” with “monkey see - monkey do”, step-by-step directions. Even my 3-year-old grandson had fun making several.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students will enjoy making some secret, "paper love" as much as mine. Wishing you many, memorable teaching moments.
