Happy Valentine's Day Greeting
Students Write a Valentine's Day Greeting
Students use a word processor and add shapes, clipart, borders, speech bubbles and fancy fonts to make a creative and imaginative Valentines's Day letter.
Basic Valentine's Day Greeting
This letter uses a simple greeting and one heart shape decoration. Start working on the typing skills early and frequently with the young ones before doing this activity. Demonstrate the use of shapes and have the kids practice using these a few times before Valentine's Day. The kids can use crayon to color in the heart shape for more personalization.
Intermediate Valentine's Day Letter
This letter adds borders, a different font type , clipart and proper sizing to fill the page. It looks simple, but it will take practice and skill for the kids to manage the clipart searches and proper clipart placement with the text.
Advanced Valentine's Day Letter
This letter is similar to the one above but adds clipart and the speech bubble shape with text. Older or more advanced students will be able to write their own personal text for the letter. Often, I will instruct the 4th - 5th graders to include several reasons in the letter why their mom or dad is so important or special to them.
