I HEART Writing

Valentine's day is right around the corner! As a computer teacher, I "love" when I can get my students excited about writing by adding a fun tech twist. On this site, students can turn any poem or piece of writing into a fun shape. Use the wrap around heart template for your Valentine's Day writing.

Read Write Think also has a fabulous shape poem interactive that allows students to create and print a poem (or short story) in the shape of a heart.

App Recommendation

First Words Valentine teaches kids about letters, how letters relate to words, and even how to spell words. This app is toddler-tested and approved, with a user-interface designed specifically for the littlest of fingers. The game includes beautiful illustrations, each matched with entertaining sounds and high-quality recordings of letters and words.
