Your students will love making this fun writing activity and craft that integrates opinion writing for Mother’s Day!
Children will enjoy planting the seeds, that you will include with the project,
with their families and feel so proud watching them grow.
Some of my students have even brought in pictures of their flowers growing in their gardens! Their Moms, Grandmoms, Aunts and special person
will love seeing what their children have written about them and the adjectives
that they use to describe them on the flower petals.
Ways to Use this Resource
♥ One way to use this is to glue the finished craft on the front of 12x18 sized construction paper folded in half to open as a card and glue the frames on the inside.
♥ Another option is to glue the finished craft onto the front of 9x12 sized construction paper and choose one of the frames to glue on the back of the craft.
♥ Looking for another fun way to present this? Stick the finished flower in an actual clay flower pot with some stones to hold it up so it looks like it is growing and then the kiddos can plant their seeds right in the pot after filling it with soil or put some soil in a baggy and include it in the pot.
Here’s what is Included:
♥ A My Mom or special person Is, Can, Has frame
♥ My mom or special person is special opinion writing frame
♥ Templates for the flower, leaves, stem and pot that can be copied for each child and they can make the craft.
♥ Template for frame for students to color or to run off on different colored paper
♥ A coloring template to run off if you would rather have the children color the flower and pot instead of assembling
♥ Circle templates to copy for students to draw a portrait of their special person or ask for photos and glue them in the middle of the flower.
♥ Copies of the saying to glue under the seed packets.
♥ A coloring template of the seed packet if you would rather put a few seeds in snack bags and use this template as a cover for the seeds.
♥ Fun for everyone!
