How Sweet It Is! A Card and Writing Prompts All Rolled Into One!
Recycle those old newspapers and you’ve got yourself a really cute Valentine or writing activity for February.
Run off copies of the "Here's the scoop!" cones on brown construction paper and have students cut them out.
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 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 chains.
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.
