A set of 18 conversation hearts for your students to use in various ways leading up to Valentine’s Day.
Use these conversation heart templates in a variety of ways leading up to Valentine’s Day.
Print the pages front-to-back, and choose for it to flip along the long edge. It also works best if you choose for it to print ‘actual size’ instead of ‘fit to page’. This will ensure the template prints correctly and the conversation heart is on the front of the page and the lines are on the back. Let your students write a sweet message on the back of a heart to share with a classmate.
A few other fun ways to use the conversation hearts in your math, reading, and writing centers include:
- Alphabetical Order – Print off only the front side of the conversation hearts on cardstock. Cut them out and have students put them in alphabetical order as a reading center activity.
- Rhyming Words – Print off only the front side of the conversation hearts on cardstock. Cut them out and place them inside a resealable container. Students pull a heart out randomly and must create a list of rhyming words for the word or phrase that appears on their heart. This is a great reading center activity for the primary students.
- Patterns – Print off only the front side of the conversation hearts on cardstock. Cut them out and have students create different patterns, i.e. ABAB, AABAAB, AABBAA. Then let a partner determine the pattern and complete it. This is a great math center activity for the primary students.
- Sentence Writing – Print off only the front side of the conversation hearts on cardstock. Cut them out and place them inside a resealable container. Students pull a heart out randomly and must write a silly sentence that includes the word or phrase. For intermediate students, have them write compound or complex sentences using the word or phrase. This is a great activity to include in your writing centers.
- Colors – Print off only the front side of the conversation hearts on cardstock. Cut them out and have your primary students sort the hearts by color.
We have created two different writing line versions. One for primary students with more space between each line and the other for intermediate students. We have also created a black and white version if you wish to print them on colored paper instead. Use the drop-down menu to choose which version is best for your students.
