This Mother’s Day Kit contains over 60 pages dedicated to celebrating the important women in students’ lives. Do your students have more than one mom or special female person? No problem! This product contains three separate and generic projects for moms, stepmoms, grandmas, aunts, etc. Students can complete all three and have a gift for everyone.
1. Mother’s Day Gift Booklet.
Contains 11 pages of writing prompts and illustration spaces for students to write about the mothers in their lives. To make the booklet more personal (and to avoid the need to copy several versions (aunt, stepmom, grandma, etc.), all of the writing prompts are written directly to the recipient ("I love you because..."rather than "I love my mom because..."). Students can choose which pages they want to include in their booklet, complete the writing prompts, and draw pictures that represent their writing. There are four versions included:
- Half-lined pages with drawing boxes (no additional graphics)
- Half-lined pages with drawing boxes (and additional graphics)
- Fully lined pages (no additional graphics)
- Fully lined pages (and additional graphics)
2. Mother’s Day Coupon Book.
This booklet contains 11 prewritten coupons and three blank forms for students to create their own coupon gifts. Students choose which they would like to give, color and/or add additional messages, cut out, and bind together.
3. 3-D Bloom Ball.
Just before Mother’s Day, my class created Bloom’s Balls for the first time. Ever heard of them? It was something I learned about from a former instructional support coach in my building. It’s a multi-sided 3-D figure that students create from paper. Each side represented a different level of Bloom’s Taxonomy focused around one topic. Students LOVED having their work hanging for others to see and I LOVED having decorations that weren’t just “fluff.” It’s a super simple activity that:
- requires students to be reflective
- shows off student work while freeing up your walls for anchor charts
- serves as conversation starters for students and anyone who walks by your room!
My kids loved the project so much that they wanted to use them for our Mother’s Day gifts.
Rather than give directions as to how students had to create their ball, I provided them with blank templates on which they wrote notes and/or illustrated. Many chose to use the prompts from the gift booklet on their shape.
This Mother’s Day Kit includes directions for creating these balls and blank shape templates. There are six versions included – two sizes each of three different shapes. Because the forms are blank, this project can be used for any holiday or content area project.
