Students will create a keepsake card for their mom or dad (or another important figure) that includes writing a personal letter among other unique creative tasks.
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.
Check out the PREVIEW to see most of the papers included in this file!
