This "craftivity" is geared for grades K-2. Students use one of the two planning sheets to plan an essay for a special mom (Mom, Aunt, Grandmother, etc.). Next, students write their essay explaining WHY this mother is so special to them on the heart-shaped pages. Finally, students decorate the pages and attach the pages to create a card/book.
Teachers, you may want to create a model of the end product for students.
