Mother's Day Freebies

As Mother's Day approaches I like to find ways to help my students to think about all the wonderful things that their mothers do for them. In this activity, students can either write words or draw pictures on the petals that depict different things a child might love about their mother. For the students that do not have a mother or live with their mother, I have included a similar sheet that they can fill out for someone that is like their mother to them. The students can use different colored pencils or inks to write words. They can outline the petals in different colors as well. If these are matted against complimentary colors that the student uses, these make a beautiful display!












The next sheet is so fun to do. I love to have students draw their best rendition of their mother and then have them write how old their mother is. Some of the students are clever and really do know....but some do not, and that is so cute to see sometimes! I let the student write whatever number they think fits their mother's age. These look really great when the student draws colorful detail in the picture as well as the background. I like to mat these on black paper. The cute frame is from Mel with Graphics from the Pond. Check out her blog called frompond.blogspot.com for some super fun graphics by clicking HERE.


I Love My Mom! I hope you enjoy using these free activities! If you are looking for other writing activities, please consider checking out my TpT store for more ideas by clicking HERE.
