Students will write and illustrate different activities they like to do (or would like to do) with their mom. Sometimes this becomes an act of persuasive writing in my classroom!
The mother’s day book project has a cover that folds around the other sheets to create the booklet format. Students should draw a picture of themselves and their mom on the cover and then I usually have my students draw a flower on the outside of the back cover. Students then finish the sentence starter on each page and complete the illustrations. This activity usually covers two to three days of writing. We wrap the books up and give them to the moms as their mother’s day presents! (They tend to last longer than flower sprouts!)
