Word Work Wednesday Part 2
Valentine's Day Writing
We read this book
In the book it talks about all of the reasons why Mouse likes his friends. We used that as a springboard discussion to play the warm fuzzy game. Each kid drew a name stick from the jar and wrote a nice thing about the person on the stick. Everyone closed their eyes and one at a time a child stuck the post it on the friend they wrote about. This was fun and went along with our kindness character trait.
Then we read this book.
After we read the book we did an interactive writing activity. We made a bubble map titled "If you give a mouse a Valentine"
The kids all wrote what they thought the mouse would want if they gave him a Valentine.
They used their ideas from the bubble map to write their sentences. When they were finished writing, they cut out hearts to display their work on.
We also practiced our cutting.
Here is our board to display their creative writing projects!
