I like the children to think about how special the person is that cares for them. I am currently working with a group of kiddos - many who are being raised by their grandmothers, aunts, and a few by foster mothers.
I created prompts that allow for different titles and names to be written in the initial writing prompt- "My Mother is the Best Because..." "My Grandmother is the Best Because..."and "My _________ is the Best Because...". I hope this helps all the children in the class to feel comfortable with the activity. I used a similar strategy with the drawing prompt.
The packet contains some really fun activities. I especially enjoy the "All About My Mother" activity and acrostic poem activity. What each child writes is such a hoot! I still have many of the Mother's Day cards and activities my kids made when they were in grade school. They are treasures well worth keeping!
I will be giving away two packets in a random drawing on Sunday evening. Just leave a comment and your email address. I will be drawing names from the comments made this weekend.
Have a great weekend
P.S. I'll post a Mother's Day craft very soon!
