In 1978 President Carter made Grandparent’s Day an official celebration.
Although it’s celebrated the first Sunday after Labor Day, I like to plan some sort of grandparent activity later in the month, when my students have gotten used to the routines of school.
Because even a celebration has to have some sort of educational activity, I designed “ABC My Grandparents Are To Me…” which includes an alphabetical list of adjectives that describe grandma and grandpa. Such as, A is for awesome.
Besides reinforcing letters, this activity is also a great way to build vocabulary.
The packet comes with several alphabet worksheet options, to fit the various needs of children: One for grandparents, a separate one for grandma, as well as grandpa; plus a fill-in-the blank one, so children can write in someone else, if they don’t have grandparents.
These options also come with and without graphics, so that children can either draw their own picture, or simply color the graphic.
Younger children can “trace the letter” on their worksheet, while older students can think up their own adjectives and write them down after the letter.
There’s also a second page, handprint worksheet as well.
Check out the PREVIEW to see the variety of options provided.
