Celebrate Mother's Day with this writing activity. This is a fun little mini book that includes 2 tabs. This particular book has a cute themed cover page that says "Mom, Happy Mother's Day", a tabbed page for students to write about 1) My mom is..... and 2) I love my mom because...... You get a three page mini book using one piece of paper, which saves on copies :-)
There is a color and black/white option.
Directions for completing the book are included on the page, so it will work perfectly for an independent activity. It can also make a great morning work or center activity. It's perfect for a substitute writing activity, too. Incorporate it into your classroom however you would like.
I have marked this activity for grades 2-5, but 2nd graders may need help with the directions and also with lining up the pages to staple. If they struggle with writing, the lines may not be big enough. All cuts are rectangles, so they should be fine on the cutting.
An added bonus is that it will work perfectly in an interactive notebook. Once the book is constructed and completed, put glue on the back page and glue it right in the journal.
