With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, students are getting ready to write or make cards for their friends and family. This is a great time to introduce or practice the skill of how to write a friendly letter. I’ve put together a Valentine-themed writing center activity that walks students through the process of writing a friendly letter.

The writing center includes a task card with step-by-step directions, 4 idea prompts, and 2 lined writing papers. It also includes directions for how to make an envelope from an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper and an envelope template. This center is best suited for students in kindergarten to second grade.
The pictures below show samples of what’s included in the activity.
I love incorporating videos into our learning. I found this great, one minute video about how to write a friendly letter that fits perfectly with this writing activity. I suggest showing it to students before they start writing.
