Product Description
Use these Valentine themed elaboration writing prompts to practice adding a variety of specific supporting details in argumentative, expository, and narrative writing. This fun activity is perfect for a center rotation in your writing workshop or can also be used as an engaging whole class lesson.

Each task card provides a topic sentence related to Valentine's Day. Students must write in three details that could be used to elaborate in a paragraph with that topic sentence. A variety of topic sentences will appeal both to students who are interested in a "sweetheart" and those who aren't.

Instructions include these types of details:
• Sensory language (imagery)
• Anecdote
• Facts & figures
• Figurative language
• Example
• Quotation

This resource includes a slideshow presentation to introduce the types of supporting details, including an example sentence for each type. You'll also get posters for display in a writing center, task cards, and an answer sheet.

Teach 150+ students? I've added a low ink version for a whole class assignment that doesn't require the task cards--just print a class set and have students write in their own notebooks or on looseleaf paper!
