Love is in the air with this Valentine writing practice printable! Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite times of the year with my students. Each February, I get out our mailbox in my preschool classroom and the kids spend a good part of their mornings writing love letters to each other. The letters are always such a hit with the kids which is why I’m excited to add this free Love Letters Valentine Writing Activity to our literacy centers this year!

*Pair with our Alphabet Easy Readers for Early Learners!

Practice uppercase and lowercase letter writing skills and letter recognition with this free Love Letters Valentine Writing Activity!

Love Letters Valentine Writing Activity

The love letters that we write to each other in class are so special. We “read” them throughout the day when we meet at Circle Time. I encourage the kids to write and draw pictures about what they like to do with their friends and why their friends make them feel loved.

This hands-on and engaging Valentine writing activity includes 4 different colored envelopes that have all of the uppercase and lowercase letters printed in dotted lines on them.

Laminate the Valentine letter writing cards and students can use dry erase markers to trace.

Time to Prep and Play!

Prepping the activity takes almost no time! Just print, laminate, and cut apart the pages. My girls are obsessed with laminating so I hand that job right over to them. Even my 6 year-old can use our laminator!

I did not cut the envelopes out until after they were laminated. I have had no issue with the edges not being completely sealed and we have used baby wipes to repeatedly erase them.

Each letter card has both an uppercase and lowercase version for students to trace.

My Kindergartener and I are so in love with these love letters! Since the Valentine letters are laminated, she can use dry erase markers to trace and erase over and over again. She wants her own set of letters to keep at home!

I plan to grab some cute mini mailboxes for my classroom to store the envelopes. This will make the writing practice learning center even more adorable! I often find mini mailboxes at the dollar store but I have also found them online.

Add the Valentine letter cards to a small basket and place them in your literacy centers this February.

Your kids are sure to love practicing their letter writing skills with this simple and fun activity!

  1. This activity will be great fun to trace and then mail in the mailbox. Do you have a version in black and white that I can print on colored cardstock so that I won’t use as much ink? Thank you

    1. Hi Debbie! This free printable is available only in color, but some teachers choose to print in grayscale in their printer’s settings rather than use colored ink. I hope your kids enjoy them and have fun using them in a pretend mailbox! : )

  2. LOVE these! I have been looking for something like this for awhile and I LOVE the idea of pairing it with the mini mailbox! Thank you!!!!
