What's in Your Heart?

I am going to try something new this year for Valentine's Day.  I have been so inspired this year by the different writing projects that I have found on Pinterest and I have to say that it has made my kids more eager to write (it is fun!).  So for Valentine's Day we are going to do a new project.  I am going to send home a heart with each student that they must fill with things that they love.  They may draw pictures, use real pictures, use words, whatever they like, to fill their heart.  Then, when they return their heart to school, the students are going to write about all of the things that fill their heart....all of the things that they love.  I made an example for them of what fills my heart:

What do you think?  We will see how it goes!
