Title – Candy Heart Sentences Using the Four Sentence Types
(Valentine’s Day Activity)
By – Brooke Redfield
Primary Subject – Language Arts
Grade Level – 6-8

Objectives:

    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.

Materials Needed:

  • Lined Card Stock Paper
  • Glue
  • Candy Message Hearts (prescreen them to make sure they are “Rated-G”)

Optional Materials:

  • Markers
  • Scalloping Scissors
  • Colored Pencils
  • Stickers
  • Glitter

Procedure:

  1. Review the four sentence types, their functions, and respective end punctuation.
  2. Distribute materials.
  3. 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!

        (exclamatory)

     BE MY VALENTINE?

      (interrogative)

    etc.

  4. 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!)
  5. Decorate the paper.

Assessment:

    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).
