A BIG happy mother's day to all the moms out there (esp the working mothers) - I'm not one yet and, honestly, I don't know how you do it! I got to spend the day with my mom and grandmothers today, it was wonderful!
On Friday, my students made Mother's Day cards. I'm not as crafty as the rest of you out there - I may need to step my game up a bit next year! I made templates for the kids to put in their cards. We practiced using similes and acrostic poems. The kids worked so hard on them but I got a kick out of reading them! They turned out so hilarious!
Here are a few:
This one has quite an affinity for animals:
This cutie wants to buy her mom a llama...maybe her mom really likes llamas??
This one is my favorite:
This mother is not athletic apparently:
Their designs were beautiful!
Even the covers came out great!
The students were allowed to choose which templates they were going to use, so here are all the materials laid out:
