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.
Definition of a Mother: "A person who does the work of 20 people for free."
Children read, add end punctuation, circle the capital letters, underline the adjectives, trace and write the directional words and then color, cut and glue the matching picture.
1-2-3 Come Write About Apples With Me!
Increase your students' writing skills with this quick and easy apple "craftivity." Before hand, brainstorm a list of adjectives that describe apples. For a source of correct spelling, as well as ideas, write the words on the board to be used as a word bank, for your students to refer to as they write their "Apple Sense." Encourage them to use at least one adjective for each section.
Review what the 5 senses are and discuss them as they apply to apples. So students know what to do, and can independently get to work, make an example of your own to share.
To add that finishing touch, have students glue their school picture to the leaf. These make an "apple-icious" bulletin board. Your caption could be: A Crop/Bushel of Great Work or Mr(s). _______________ 's Students Get To The Core Of Writing. You could also punch a hole in the stem, and suspend the apples back-to-back from the ceiling.

Thanks for visiting today. As always, feel free to PIN away. I'm off to enjoy some summer sunshine.
