We have Valentine’s Day, a big dental presentation, and President’s Day information to cover.
Bring – it – on!
We started off our week getting excited for V-Day by writing some opinion pieces:
Sweethearts or Sweet Tarts?
Which one do you like better?!
My answer is easy…. Sweet Tarts! I DETEST Sweethearts… blek… I am gagging just thinking about them.
We reviewed writing opinion pieces and then my students got to taste each one.
Next, students got to write reasons why they liked both:
Lastly, they wrote their opinion papers!
This was such an easy writing lesson and the students loved getting to taste the different Valentine’s Day candy. Lucky for me, most of my students liked the Sweethearts better. Which means I took home LOTS of Sweet Tarts! Happy Valentine’s Day to ME!

I love the Sweetarts! I was never a fan of the Sweet HEarts, but I found myself eating them around Valentine's Day. Why is that? 🙂 I love these activities and will definitely take advantage of the deal right now! Thank you!

You are very welcome! It is ez-pz and the kids love it!
When I am feeling sweet and the kids are lovey-Dovey, I prefer sweet hearts! But when the day has gone nuts and I feel that overwhelming need to pull my hair out, sweet TARTS save the day with giving me that Zing to take me to a happy place again!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Love the opinion writing!!
Sweet Tarts ALL.THE.WAY.

What a cute idea! I love how you used it to create an opinion writing piece. It is always so hard to get the kiddos excited about writing but I know they would love this! Thanks for sharing!

aww! I love this activity…and it seems pretty inexpensive too since a whole bag will fit the whole class. With some left over for the teacher! 😉 Too cute, what a great idea I'll have to remember for next year.
So cute and delicious to boot! Bet your kiddos had a blast. Happy Heart Day Susan!
