For a creative writing prompt for Valentine’s Day, have students choose a friend to make some “paper love” for.
Children complete the prompt: Why do I like you? Let me count the ways… When they are finished, they color the picture.
To jump-start your students’ minds, write one about your best friend or a
relative to share as an example. To build self-esteem and promote
friendship, have students choose a classmate to make one for.
included the original poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count The Ways.
For more practice, assign 2-3 more classmates for students to write a valentine bookmark for.
There are 7 black & white bookmarks for them to choose from, plus a sheet of mini ones, if they’d like to make more. This activity fits in nicely if you do the “Fill a Bucket” program.
I’ve also included a set of full color ones for you to write to each of your students. There’s one for boys and one for girls.
