PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Enjoy using these Mother's Day writing activites with your primary students. There are three activities for students to complete on their own or in a small group setting.

1. Map - Students may write words or sentences under each heading to describe their mothers.

2. Sentence Frames - Students complete each sentence about their mothers. Encourage second and third graders to use descriptive words and phrases, including similes. Have students rewrite on Mother and Me paper or type and print onto stationary.

3. Mother and Me paper - Students can draw a picture of themselves with their mothers in the picture space and write to or about them.

Product Questions & Answers

On  February 7, 2013Kelly Wade (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi! I love your idea of writing about mom. I'm a fifth grade teacher so I would not use the first page, but I can see my students writing about some of their favorite memories of mom. It would really help me if you would add another page for writing, but with all lines. I'd even like to see a third page with a smaller box on top- maybe the left side and then a smaller box on the bottom of the right side. Students would then be able to turn the writing into a book about their moms. It's just a thought. My students seem to thing they should type everything official. But for mom- it should be in their own writing with their own drawings.

On  August 22, 2013Heather Law answered:
Hi there. I really appreciate your ideas. As a fifth grade teacher I can imagine this product doesn't quite suit your students' needs as it was created for primary students. However, you could create the pages you described using Word by using the underline key for lines and the shapes option to draw your boxes. It is a great idea to create a book for moms as well!
On  May 3, 2012Scipi (TpT Seller) asked:
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done!

Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. Make a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do you...? When do you...? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.

Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages. Finally, unless you want your products revised (I do for my tests) save everything in a PDF format as it is harder to change.

I’d appreciate your input on one of my freebies listed below. I love to get feedback, especially from new people

I am now your 4th follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

Check out the Sellers Forum under Communication on your dashboard page. There are tons of ideas and helpful suggestions given by TPT veterans. The best of luck as you sell on TPT!
