Looking for a cute Mother's Day gift for your students to make? Do you hold a Muffins for Mom event at your school?

My students love to illustrate the poem "If You Give a Mom a Muffin" (based on the Laura Numeroff books) in this mini-book. I read the text aloud then we brainstorm ideas for each page. I draw under the document camera as they are drawing for those that need the extra support. We then craft a special gift bag of their mom in bed and include a poem about having breakfast in bed. The students are always very excited to pick out the perfect muffin for their mom. When funds allow, I have also included a Starbucks Via (instant coffee) to put in the bag. Other users have included muffin mix and cocoa packets.

  • teacher directions and ideas
  • sample illustration ideas
  • gift bad directions and the poem "Breakfast in Bed."
  • alternate cocoa wording instead of coffee
  • Aunt and Grandma alternate covers
