Isn't he a cutie? Meet the Love Bug letter!
Students chose one person to write to that they really loved. Students wrote a rough draft and brought it to the teacher to edit. I took a grade right then and there. We grade on a 3 (mastered), 2 (progressing) or a 1 (limited progress). Students with all 3 commons (date, greeting, closing) earned a 3. Students with 2 commas earned a 2, and students with 1 or less comma earned a 1. Simple!
Then students wrote the final draft and created this little guy!
They will take them home on Valentine's Day and give it to the person they love. Aww!
It was a pretty quick project- about 1 day for the letter and 1 day for the craft.
If you would like a copy it is in my Teachers Pay Teachers store for only $3.00!
