Here’s a very versatile, quick, easy and super-fun writing prompt craft that you can use with various grades for a variety of reasons and holidays:

  • Valentine’s Day (Great for a party day activity.)
  • Mother’s Day
  • Grandparents Day
  • Veterans Day

  • As a Thank You! We Appreciate You!” note for volunteers, teachers, classroom helpers, bus drivers, firefighters etc.
  • As a “Get Well” or sympathy note for an ill or grieving classmate.
  • As a “Just a Note” to a classmate or other friend.
  • Great to write a note at the end of the year to next year's new students. (How fun to open these on the first day of back to school.)
  • A simple and generic writing prompt for your sub tub.
  • As stationery for your "bucket filling" activities.

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, "May I 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 4, “Confidential”, “Top Secret!” and “For Your Eyes Only” labels to add to the fun.

Nothing like writing a “secret” message to get students excited about writing.

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.

There are 8 graphic options on the front of the “envelope”.

These templates come in a horizontal AND vertical pattern.

I've listed this activity as "not grade specific" because I've done it with my Young Fives, as well as older elementary students. It's super-easy to diversify and scale to your students' abilities.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me hoping your students will enjoy making some heart-shaped messages as much as mine. Wishing you many, memorable teaching moments.
