Mother's Day Ideas

May is finally here!  I know we've been waiting for it all school year.  As the school year comes to an end, I'm going to tell you about a sweet and simple Mother's Day project that I do every year!

Every year I have my students make a book for their mother/grandmother/aunt/etc. They write about meals their mom cook for them, things they do with their mom, why they love them so much, etc.

After going through the brainstorming, planning, and editing stages, they get a copy of one of these books:

Inside, they rewrite their sentences and illustrate each page.  Once they are finished, they get to wrap them and add a bow and gift tag:
Students are always so excited to surprise their moms, and moms love them!

If you're interested in making these with your students, I've created a packet with instructions, graphic organizers, writing plan sheets, and a fun fill-in-the-blank.  Templates for moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, and uncles, as well as a blank are included!

I hope you might be able to use some of these activities!  I will be back next month!  Until then, have a great end of the school year!
