This file includes all of the materials needed for your students to create an unforgettable card for Mother's Day.... and it even includes the materials to create a Father's Day card as well!
Both files follow the same pattern:
Front of Card:
Metaphors for Mom
Students read the two items listed and circle the one they think their parent likes better (example: fancy restaurant or fast food?)
A trophy lists an award students think his/her parent should receive
A personal letter is tucked inside the trophy
Back of Card:
Teachers can choose the writing they want their students to include on this page (perhaps a poem, memory, or a list)
Do you have students who do not have a mother or father? There is an "alternate" file for those students. "Mom" or "Dad" are not listed on these worksheets. These students may choose to make a card for their grandma, aunt, uncle, foster parent, stepparent, or another special person in their life.
Student-friendly directions (with photos) are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project.
