Valentine's Day Writing Activity Crumpled Heart Collaborative Writing Assignment: This fun and collaborative classroom Valentine's Day writing activity is designed to ignite creativity in even the most reluctant writers. This collaborative writing exercise promises to have students eagerly reaching for their pencils as they craft their own love-inspired Valentine's Day narrative story. The Valentine's Day Crumpled Heart writing method not only fosters teamwork but also ensures that this lesson will be one that your students never forget!

How the Crumpled Heart Valentine's Day Writing Activity Works:
  1. Distribute 30 pre-made worksheets, each featuring a different Valentine's Day-inspired visual story starter, to each student. Instruct them to start writing their own narratives based on these prompts.
  2. After a predetermined amount of time, instruct the first writer to crumple their story sheet into a "heart" and throw it to the front of the room.
  3. Encourage all students to gather at the front and select one of these "crumpled heart" stories to continue writing from where the previous writer left off.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 twice more, introducing further creative twists to the narratives.
  5. Eventually, return the stories to their original authors. Instruct the students to engage in the essential steps of editing, revising, and crafting a final copy of their narratives!
Students always have so much fun with this, and they usually can't believe you are letting them crumple up their stories!
