Heart Attack: A February Writing Unit!

If you are already getting things ready for the month of February, you *might* want to take a look at my new writing pack. Yes, that's right friends...I am ahead for the first time this year! I can't believe it myself. Maybe that has something to do with my love for Valentine's Day. We had way too much fun last year in our classroom for V-day! Check it out {HERE}. Well, since I have those same kiddos, this year must be all new...once again! So, I have put together four super easy, super fast, super fun activities that I think the kids are going to love...especially the boys! I mean who doesn't want to give away a Valen"slime"?

Here is a preview! 

Heart Attack Writing: During this writing activity, the students will replace words with conversation hearts. These writings are always a hit with the students and are absolutely hysterical. 

Conversation Hearts: This activity can be used with any writing skill. The students will create their very own conversation hearts with sight words, idioms, sentence types, sentence structures, or more! 

 The Perfect Valen"slime": This writing activity will be perfect for all of the boys in your classroom. The students will create a Valenslime card with anything creepy, crawly, slimy, or yucky! They will complete their card with a descriptive writing about what they chose for their Valenslime.

Text Me Similes: The students will write text messages to a friend in the form of a simile. This activity will be displayed on a fun cell phone craftivity. 

If you are going to purchase this unit, you may also want to pick up this book. It will be a class favorite for sure and goes perfectly with many of these activities. It is no longer in print, but can be picked up used on Amazon for pretty cheap!
