By – Brooke Redfield
Primary Subject – Language Arts

- Students will create four sentences given one or two words which appear on a candy heart, per each sentence; they will create declarative, imperative, interrogative, and exclamatory sentences.
- Lined Card Stock Paper
- Candy Message Hearts (prescreen them to make sure they are “Rated-G”)
- Scalloping Scissors
- Colored Pencils
- Review the four sentence types, their functions, and respective end punctuation.
- Distribute materials.
- Have students create their own Valentine’s Day themed sentences around the messages on the candy hearts.
For example: WANT YOU TO BE MY VALENTINE!
BE MY VALENTINE?
- Have students glue the conversation heart candies onto the paper and write their sentences around them (remind them that these candies ARE NOT for eating!)
- Decorate the paper.
- Students participate appropriately for class participation credit. Students will be graded based on whether or not they successfully create four coherent and complete sentences (one for each sentence type).
