What’s included in this Valentine’s Day writing center?
This Valentine’s Day set includes two word charts (in color and black and white) to help with spelling and with generating writing ideas.

The rest of this package holds thematic writing paper for your students to make their own Valentine’s Day cards and letters. Most of the cards are two or four to a page. This saves paper and allows children many options when writing. Add some colorful pencils or pens, and you are ready to go with an easy and engaging center!

Tips for Using This Valentine’s Day Writing Center
To get your students engaged with this February writing center, start by printing a variety of options of card templates. You might want to print them on paper of varied colors to add a little extra excitement. Cut the templates apart and arrange them in a way that students can easily access them. Provide writing utensils such as colored pens and pencils.
Establish routines for your writing center and review them daily with your students. Consider whether you want to set limits on the number of pieces of stationery they can use per setting and/or the amount you expect them to write or draw before considering a card complete.
