I was on Pintrest last week looking for some cute ideas for a Valentine's themed writing activity as well as rummaging up all of the previous year's Valentine writing ..... and I just didn't like anything. I wanted to do something different! I usually have the kids write about someone in their family whom they love and care about or write Valentine's Day cards and teach letter writing. But I was randomly looking through pictures from past vacations and saw a picture from high school (holy moly....THAT was a while back!) of me in NYC and I was wearing an I Heart New York t-shirt. Then it came to me!! I HEART first grade! So that's what we made this week...stories about all the things we "heart" about 1st grade. These were super easy to do and look SUPER CUTE! I just matted the stories on red construction paper, printed out copies of the text "I" and "First Grade" (Font: Curlz), and di-cut the pink hearts. I matted the "I", the heart, and "First Grade" on another sheet of red construction paper, and then cut around the edges, leaving a little tab at the bottom to glue the story to. Love them!!
