This craftivity really makes a good center activity. Students work diligently to make the nicest poem they can for their moms, and then they practice it.
I also have the hearts to print out on a regular printer, but didn't think you needed that page as an example. I used to cut all the hearts from the ellison machine, however, the $1.00 heart boxes at store are smaller now and my ellison hearts no longer fit.
This is the inside of the box.
My valentine set looks like the above. I have a larger heart box than I use with the kids.
I don't do this every year, but many years I have purchased a box for each student as their valentine gift. That way they could actually have the box to do the valentine poem.
Other years, I buy the boxes and let the students buy them from me. I do this because the school is in the country and many kids can't get to the store to buy a box.
Still other years, the kids are on their own as far as boxes go, but they still make the poem.
