Our students have been working on adding dialogue into their narratives. In order to both practice our new skill and get into the Valentine's Day spirit, we wrote dialogue with conversation hearts.
The students were given two conversation hearts (I went through and sorted out the "Kiss Me", "First Kiss", "Love Me", etc.) and had to build a dialogue from them. We practiced together first.
Then the students got busy with their own conversation heart dialogue. They rough drafted in their composition journals and completed a final draft. Students created a drawing scene to go with their dialogue. Then we jazzed them up with some fancy scissors and festive cardstock.
