Now, the tough part

  • Do not leave the list for the students to read. You must explain every item on your list, one by one.

  • You must honestly explain all of your topics. These topics can include but are not limited to: dreams, heartbreaks, losses, achievements, favorite items, bad and good memories, favorite pieces of literature, goals, funny stories, aspirations, etc.

  • After you have shared your list ask the students to share.

  • Remind students to add to his/her list if they hear a good idea.

  • Use arts and crafts materials to make the heart “jump” off the paper.
