Here's The Scoop-A Valentine & Writing Prompt All Rolled Into One!
Recycle those old newspapers and you’ve got yourself a really cute Valentine or writing activity for February.
Make templates from file folders for your students to use to trace onto a page of the newspaper.
They cut out their scoop of ice cream, glue it to their cone (which they cut out) and then top it off with a cherry heart.
I’ve also provided a template for the “cherries” or you can give students large sparkly-heart stickers to add that finishing touch.
Run off the “flipped-up” messages and give students a choice of what they want to do/write about, OR you could have them make this a valentine AND writing prompt and do both, then staple the pages together.
I “hinged” the completed cone with a small square of Scotch tape stuck to the cherry and attached it to a sheet of scrapbook paper.
Stores have all sorts of packs on sale at this time of year. If not, print off a 40-50% off coupon from one of the major craft chain stores.
These make a cute bulletin board on a black background with paper lace for the framed border. OR…
Hang them in a row in the hallway, just high enough so that people can flip and read. Send them home on Valentine’s Day.
