All moms love to get something special on Mother's Day from their child. They especially like when children write out special messages.
There are 5 full pages in this Mother's Day activity, which makes a 10 page mini book.
This Mother's Day mini book includes a cover page, a page to draw a picture of child and mom doing an activity together, a page that says "I love you because...", a page that says "I really like it when...", a page that says "I Know you work hard at...", a page for words to describe mom, 2 Mother's Day coupon pages where students design the coupons (4 total coupons), a page that says "I would also like to tell you...", and a final page that has a coloring sheet that says Happy Mother's Day. All pages except the coupon pages have a black line Mother's Day coloring picture.
This mini book can be the Mother's Day gift or it can be given in conjunction with a craft you make in class. All mothers are sure to love and appreciate what their children write.
Also, because this includes lots of writing, it would work great as a literacy center.
