This “Berry” Special Writing Prompt Craftivity, is super versatile, as I’ve included a back-to-school pattern that says: “I had a ‘berry’ special summer because…” as well as an end of the year template: “This school year was ‘berry’ special because…”
Run the summer strawberry off on hot pink with lime green leaves; then see wonderful improvement in your students’ writing, when they complete the other prompt, at the end of the year.
I run that pattern off on red, with dark green leaves.
Since this is a front & back activity, they look awesome suspended from the ceiling by the paper loop “stem”.
For extra pizzazz, add a school photo, the flower, and 3D leaves.
I’ve also included another pattern to make a “Thank you ‘berry’ much!” card, which you can give to volunteers who’ve helped your class, the secretary or whoever gave you a helping hand throughout the year.
Flip the card up to reveal a picture of your class holding a thank you sign or letter cards spelling the words out, then have everyone sign it.
Another pattern is for a Mother’s Day card: “My (mom, mommy, mama, mum, grandma) is ‘berry’ special because…”
Have students make hand print “leaves” for that keepsake touch.
There are full page, as well as smaller, 2-on-a-page patterns, plus blank templates.
Finally, the "fruity treat" is a little gift you can give your students at the beginning or end of the year:
"I hope your summer is 'berry' special just like you." or . . .
"I'm wishing you a 'berry' special year.
Attach the strawberry tag to a berry-flavored juice box or package of Skittles.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you have a super-fun and “berry” special time with these activities.
