In this easy-to-use NO PREP Mother's Day Poem activity, students will create an "I Am" poem that has been adjusted and structured to pay tribute to their mom or a special female figure in their life.
Students first brainstorm various things about their mom, such as: three adjectives to describe her, her favorite place to visit, what the students admires most about their mom, etc. Then, students take their brainstorm ideas and plug what they've written into an "I Am" poem that has been changed to be a "She is," "She believes," "She feels," etc. poem for their mom. Students are provided with a specific outline to follow to make this an easy, yet still academic Mother's Day gift for their moms! Have students write their final draft on card stock or even laminate these as a very special present!
**As an ADDED BONUS, we've also included the final draft paper in a digital Google Drive version, so your students can create everything digitally if you'd like!!**
