Love That Teaching Idea!
Submitted: April 18, 2001
Valentine's time, I bring a big bag of conversation hearts to
my classroom. I evenly distribute them to my students. Their assignment
is to incorporate the words on the conversation heart candy into
a story. They dab a little white glue on the back of the hearts
to attach to their stories where the words fit into the sentences.
Sometimes I will do this same activity with the weekly spelling
words as well. Of course I always have an extra bag on candy on
hand to pass out and eat afterwards!
