The packet includes templates that you can use at the beginning of the school year to get to know your students, as well as one to use at the end of the year, plus bookmarks you can give to your kiddos, plus one they can make for your next year's students.
Card flips open to reveal why their child thinks they are a sweet mom. Add a photo inside the cherry and some paper "sprinkles" for that finishing touch. This Mother's Day "craftivity" is a special FREEBIE in my TpT shop. Click on the link to get your copy today!
Your current students make a bee out of a toilet paper tube, yellow construction paper (body), black electrical tape (stripes), cupcake liners (wings) and a pipe cleaner (antennae). They complete the writing prompt: "I'm wishing you a 'bee-utiful' year in __________. (Fill in grade) Here's the buzz about what you'll learn and do" and then roll it up and insert it into their bumblebee.
Have students complete the writing prompt: "You're going to have a great year 'bee-cause'..." on the pages inside the mini apple booklet, and then glue it to the bumblebee that your current students make for your next year's kiddos.
Packet includes 3 templates to make this Mother's Day card. Share your sample, and explain to students that when they flip their card upside down, the word MOM, now spells WOW. This is a palindrome. Encourage children to share their card both ways with their mom. Older students can complete the writing prompt: My mom is a wow mom because . . . on the back.

There's a background template for Mother's Day and Father's Day, as well as a generic one so a child can give this to anyone. Students take their shoe off and trace it on a folded sheet of construction paper. By cutting once they will have two "butterfly wings."
There are 3 templates so you can use this for Mother's Day with a generic "You are 'berry' special" pattern, so students can give this to someone else, or make for Grandparents' Day.
Students write a sentence on each colored strip of why their mom/special person colors their world with love.
This is a versatile craftivity, as you can use the various templates for a Mother's Day or Father's Day gift, or something to make with grandparents for Grandparent's Day. If you'd like to give your students an end-of-the-year gift, this is also relatively easy and inexpensive, and sure to become a keepsake. This "craftivity" is a special FREEBIE in my TpT shop.
