1-2-3 Come Make A Cupcake With Me
Since the end-of-the-year writing prompts have been such popular downloads, I decided to make a few more. I hope you enjoy these new FREEBIES.
"Sweet!" has come to mean wonderful, awesome, great, as well as a sugary taste, so I thought I'd create the prompt: "_____________ (fill in your grade level) was really sweet because..."
It didn't take long to decide that a cupcake would be the perfect "craftivity"for this June writing prompt.
Your students can make the cupcake for themselves or for one of your new students who will be coming in the fall. What a nice surprise for them to find this cute card in/on their desk the first day of school, with a note from a former student.
I've included templates for preschool through 3rd grade, plus a blank one to fill in with whatever.
If you don't want to do the cupcake craft, I've also included a simpler option.
Run off the black and white cupcake bookmark that says: "Wishing you a sweet year!" Students color the cupcake and write something underneath the greeting.
If you'd like to give your students more practice, have them write why they thought this grade was sweet, on the back. To make this even more personal, print off your class composite, cut the students' heads into ovals, and have them glue their photo somewhere on the bookmark next to their name.
The packet also includes 4 different, full color, cupcake bookmarks from the teacher, that say: "Wishing you a sweet summer."
Write your students' names at the top, and sign yours under the note. You may want to include the bookmark with a mini muffin as a special treat.
