1-2-3 Come Review The 5 Senses With Me.
This “play-on-words” ( "My _______ is Sense-sational" ) writing prompt craftivity is a nice review of the 5 senses and definitely has the “Awwwww” factor, as children use their 5 senses to describe their mom, dad, or other special person.
It’s very versatile & something that’s quick, easy & fun for Mother’s Day, or use the blank “fill in” templates for Father’s Day.
These “fill-in-the blank" pattern pages are also perfect if you happen to have a child without a mom, or perhaps a student would like their paper to say “Mum”, “Mommy” or “Ma Ma”.
I made my samples using real answers from children. I hope they bring a smile to your face.
A particular favorite of mine is the answer to the question: "What does your mom smell like?" to which Kaiden replied, "Water cuz she smells good after a shower."
I’m sure the ideas your own students will come up with, will be as sweetly hilarious as well.
Since classrooms today are filled with a lot of diversity, I designed 12 girl & 12 boy head patterns, which offer a nice selection for your students to choose from. There's also a blank template if a child wants to draw their own head.
Instead of drawing a portrait of themselves, another option is for children to draw a picture of their mom or dad.
Students pick one, then add facial features, color it, and finally label their five senses.
Have students pick a partner, and take turns drawing one hand on a folded sheet of construction paper. This way they only have to cut once to get two hands, which they glue to the cover of their card.
For the writing prompt portion of the card, there are 4 girl & 4 boy options, plus a generic bear pattern to choose from.
Students complete the sentences, color & sign their card, stapling the cover to the top.
Younger kiddos can simply dictate their answers to the teacher, a room helper, or their older reading buddy.
Today's featured FREEBIE: "Orange You Glad?" is an end-of-the year treat you can make to give your students on the last day of school.
If you've got that covered, I've also included a pattern for the beginning of the school year as well. I hope you find them useful.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
Time to begin my "too long" To Do list... No matter how many things I check off, I seem to always replace them with a dozen more! Wishing you a delightful day.

1-2-3 Come Make A Father's Day Booklet With Me
As I've stated in a previous article, daddies sometime get jipped out of a homemade gift or card for Father's Day, that their little one made in school, because many children are alreay on vacation, before that special day rolls around.
If you still have a few days or weeks left, you may want a sweet summer writing prompt for your kiddo's to work on.
This booklet makes a wonderful card for Father's Day and a nice independent activity for your Daily 5 or writing/reading center.
It's a nice review of a variety of Common Core State Standards, that students need to incorporate, as they work on their booklet.
Students use adjectives and verbs to describe their dad and then draw a picture of him.
Children can also cut out the happy Father's Day heart or the square and glue it to their paper for a bit more pizzazz.
Make this even more of a keepsake by adding a school picture.
