We aim to please over here at the Factory. So . . . when I received a request to make another Sweet Story Freebie to go with the upcoming holiday, I just couldn’t say no. And, the best part is that my own kids are gonna freak when I bring this one back to class next week. It’s a win-win for everyone 🙂
|Bubbly Borders + More just came out with this
snazzy glitter border . . . swoon!
So, this is a great game that can be played in a whole class or small group setting. Here’s how this heartwarming ditty rolls . . .
Prepare for this activity by printing out a class set of the story templates and adjective mats of choice. In addition, every child will need one conversation heart candy. (I suggest having a few back up candies as they can break or roll away!)
To begin play, students drop their heart candy on their adjective mat. The word that the treat lands on (or is closest to) is written in any space on their story template. Students continue this process until all of the spaces on their story template are filled!

Here are a few additional notes on the game . . . .
- As kiddos complete the task, I always ask them them illustrate their creations on the back of their story template (many of my babes will ask to color the front too).
- Considering the toll this horrendous flu season has taken on our little classroom, I will be trading my kids when they finish. You are probably asking yourself . . . is that English?? Let me explain this a bit better . . . I’ll have my kiddlets give me the candy they played with in exchange for a sealed and germ-free box of convo hearts 🙂
- When everyone’s crazy story was completed, my kids will cruise the room and read their stories to each other!
- Two adjective mat templates are included in this FREEBIE pack. One of the adjective mats is a little crazier than the other . . . pick the one that is right for you and your crew of kiddos!
