1-2-3 Come Make A Mother's Day Gift With Me!
Are you looking for some quick, easy and inexpensive ideas for making a Mother's Day gift that will become a cherished keepsake? You've come to the right blog. How about some "paper love" where that adorable creation becomes even more special when their child reads it to them!
I've designed several easy readers that teach a variety of common core standards. Be sure and read the completed projects as a whole group to reinforce concepts of print, and as a fun way for students to practice before they take their treasures home to read.
My Book Of Flowers reinforces color words. Students read the simple sentences and add end punctuation.
They trace and write the words in their matching colors, color the flower the appropriate color, and then color, cut & glue the matching picture.
The end of the story includes a Happy Mother's Day greeting with a lovely bouquet. I've also included a blank template for students who are giving the booklet to someone other than a mommy. Click on the link to view/download My Book of Flowers Mother's Day easy reader.
Where Are The Flowers? is another easy reader, This one reinforces spatial directions.
Students read the simple sentences and add end punctuation. The sentence "clues" tell where they should glue the flowers (in, above, under, between etc.)
Children trace and write the directional words. The surprise ending has a 3D door where Happy Mother's Day wishes and a lovely bouquet await mom when she flips it open.
As with the above booklet, I've also included generic pages, so students can fill in another special person. Click on the link to view/download the Mother's Day Spatial Direction booklet.
My Mom is my personal favorite. Here students use adjectives and adverbs to describe their mommies.
They also draw a picture and cut out the Happy Mother's Day heart. You can make this booklet even more of a keepsake, by adding a school picture.
I've done the pages in traceable format for little ones. Older students can simply write their own pages.

Finally, Thanks For All You Do Mom was my Y5's favorite. They especially enjoyed making a blue-ribbon badge for their mom and tucking it in this easy reader.
The list of things that "mom's do and are loved for," was compiled throughout the years by my Y5's via a discussion, so the booklet is truly from a child's perspective.
Students read, trace, write, color, cut, glue and add end punctuation. I've updated this packet and included 3 booklets for various ages/ability levels + the original one in color.
Older students can draw their own pictures, where as younger kiddos color, cut and glue the picture to the page, as well as trace and write the main idea words.
I've included a variety of little square pictures for students to choose from to include on their blue ribbon badge for mom, or you can have children draw their own.
The pictures reflect the ideas in their booklet and were thought up by my Y5's. Click on the link to view/download the Thanks For All You Do Mom activity packet.
