Write a story that includes the text of the candy conversation hearts you chose.
Valentines Day, valentine, candy, heart, conversation, quotation, quotation marks
Purchase a bag of "conversation heart" candies. Pour half of the candies into a bowl. Let each student pick out randomly from a bowl five to ten of the candy hearts. If students pick out any duplicate candy phrases, you might have them return the duplicates to the bowl and choose replacements. Then challenge students to write a story that includes in it all of the conversation heart phrases they picked out of the bowl.
Did students work all the candy heart phrases into their stories? Did the phrases sound natural within the context of the story? You might invite students to share their stories and for their peers to vote privately on their favorite stories.
