Product Description
Are you looking for a February writing project that will truly engage your students? This writing project may be just what you are looking for! This is one of those units that I truly look forward to teaching each year, and it is my BEST SELLING writing unit!

This unit begins with the students closing their eyes and imagining that they have walked into a candy shop, looking for a Valentine's Day gift for a loved one. The sales lady shows them a special box of MAGIC Valentine's chocolates. When their loved one bites into the chocolate, your students' wishes for that person comes true!! (This activity is scripted- as the teacher, you simply read from the script as your students' eyes are closed.)

Students then decide what their wishes for their loved one are. They draw or write them on their brainstorming sheet (reproducible included), and then plan their writing on their planning organizer (reproducible included). They continue the writing process by writing their rough draft, revising, editing, conferencing, and publishing (publishing paper included).

The Valentine's Day writing activity culminates with the fun craftivity project! Detailed instructions (with photos) are included to guide you in leading your class on how to complete the craftivity. Students draw pictures of their wishes and "sandwich" them in between two brown construction paper circles so that they resemble chocolates. Then they cut two large hearts out of construction paper to make their "box of chocolates", and glue their chocolates inside (see photo).

This entire packet is differentiated so that it can be used with primary students AND upper elementary students. Lower grade levels write about 3 wishes, and upper elementary students write about 5 wishes and include more details. (Each reproducible page comes in two versions- one for lower elementary and one for upper elementary).

This 18-page packet includes many bonus features:
1 title page

2 lesson plans pages that focuses on introducing the unit (this part includes the scripted visualization activity)

1 lesson plan page: Brainstorming

2 Brainstorming papers (one for lower elem and one for upper elem)

1 lesson plan page: Planning

2 Planning papers (one for lower elem and one for upper elem)

1 lesson plan page: Writing
