To wrap up our unit on letter writing, the High School Resource program “got sweet!”
In honor of Valentine’s Day, we completed “Conversation Hearts” letters, writing love letters or letters of appreciation to people close to us. The teacher set out a large bowl of candy conversation hearts and the students chose 5 each, gluing in the hearts in their letters, as appropriate. We came up with some funny letters but also a few heart-warming ones, including one student’s letter to his mother telling her how much he loves her—truly a gift she will cherish. This writing project produced creative Valentine’s letters that both the writer and the recipient appreciated and enjoyed.
