I am always looking for great (and inexpensive!) Mother's Day and Father's Day Gifts that my students can make. I decided to create my own template for a creative poetry gift- and they were a HIT with the parents!
Students learned how to write Cinquain Poems (an example is given on the first page of this set), and wrote their own poems about their dads for Father's Day. Then they could either draw a picture above the writing, or hold up the D-A-D letters to take a picture (to be glued above the poem.)
This poem can then be trimmed down to fit into a 8x10 picture frame (I got a bunch of frames from a local dollar store), or can be backed on construction paper and laminated. Either way, it makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift!
This set includes cinquain poem templates for Father's Day, Mother's Day, Grandparent's Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Congratulations, and two blank templates with only the poem lines (one centered in the middle of the border, one centered at the bottom of the border.)
