This strawberry craft writing prompt is very versatile with 5 options. It's easy to diversify for a variety of reasons: back to school, Mother's Day or end of the year.

Teacher Comments:

  • “Adorable resource. Students loved it!”
  • "Very cute activity and easy to use and put together!”

Options #1 and #2:

I’ve included a back-to-school pattern that says: “I had a ‘berry’ special summer because…” as well as an end of the year template: “This school year was ‘berry’ special because…”

Run the summer strawberry off on hot pink with lime green leaves; then see wonderful improvement in your students’ writing, when they complete the other prompt, at the end of the year.

I run that pattern off on red, with dark green leaves.

Since this is a front & back activity, they look awesome suspended from the ceiling by the paper loop “stem”.

For extra pizzazz, add a school photo, the flower, and 3D leaves.

Option #3:

I’ve also included another pattern to make a “Thank you ‘berry’ much!” card, which you can give to volunteers who’ve helped your class, bus drivers, the secretary or whomever gave you a helping hand throughout the year.

Flip the card up to reveal a picture of your class holding a thank you sign or letter cards spelling the words out, then have everyone sign it.

Option #4:

Another pattern is for a Mother’s Day card: “My (mom, mommy, mama, mum, grandma) is ‘berry’ special because…”

Have students make hand print “leaves” for that keepsake touch.

There are full-page as well as smaller, 2-on-a-page patterns, plus blank templates.

Teacher Comment:

  • “This was the best Mother's Day project ever...all of the kids had a great time making them and they wanted to make more than one for all of the "mothers" in their lives.”

Option #5:

Finally, the "fruity treat" is a little gift you can give your students at the beginning or end of the year:

"I hope your summer is 'berry' special just like you." or . . .

"I'm wishing you a 'berry' special year."

Attach the strawberry tag to a berry-flavored juice box or package of Skittles.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me hoping you have a super-fun and “berry” special time with these activities.
