Moms will LOVE the special memories kids write about in this book. It's a fun, easy Mother's Day gift that the moms of your students will cherish. The writing portion of this book is perfect for writing workshop!
Students are given prompts to:
-Write a friendly letter
-Make lists about mom (or aunt, grandma, etc.)
-Write a poem
-Share in narrative form how special she is
-Share favorite memories, times spent together
-Draw a portrait of mom
-Tell her how she's made a difference
**NOTE: To be considerate of students in all situations, the word "mom" is not used in the prompts. Students could easily make this book for an aunt, grandmother, or another person special to them. (The front cover reads, "Happy Mothers's Day." Other than the cover, the words "mom" or "mother" are not used. :) )
When finished with the book, students put the book together with a special cover that includes coupons to help mom out!
Templates are included.
