Mother's Day Craftivities and Cards!

Mother's Day is fast approaching, and here are some of our favorite craftivities and cards to make for our moms!
This activity is great to do with Kindergarten kids or younger! Students tell what their moms make as their favorite dish, then share how to make it, what ingredients she uses, the process, etc. 
It is SO cute (and funny!) Just type in what they say on the recipe book pages, then print and you've got the SWEETEST (and most original) cookbook in town! The moms always LOVE this keepsake!
Find the EDITABLE Mother's Day cookbook {here}

This is a unique craftivity that is fun for students to make (K-3). Students will assemble the lapbook and share lots of sweet things about their moms!



(primary lines and plain lined page options are provided)
Find the Mother's Day lapbooks {here}

These coffee themed Mother's Day cards are great for first-third graders. Students draw themselves with their moms, and then write a note on the lined portion of the card.

Favorite Easter Books for Kids

A list of favorite Easter themed books for kids in PreK, Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade.
JAN BRETT'S THE EASTER EGG 
Jan Brett is a well-known and loved author known for wonderful storytelling and beautiful pictures! This Easter story follows Hoppi on his quest to design the winning Easter egg, so that he will be chosen to assist the Easter Rabbit! 
Find a companion pack for this precious story {here}
THE PARABLE OF THE LILY
If you teach in a religious school, like me, you might choose to focus on a Christian themed Easter story. This book by Liz Curtis Higgs shares the Easter story as a parable.
I have made a companion pack to go along with this book {here}
KEVIN HENKES' EGG
 Kevin Henkes just released his 50th book, and it's called EGG. This sweet book is full of fun surprises!
This book study companion pack supplements the story!

THE EASTER BUNNY'S ASSISTANT
 Students always crack up when we read The Easter Bunny's Assistant. That's because the assistant is a skunk, and when he gets excited...well he creates quite a stink :)
My companion pack for this Easter favorite can be found {here}
THERE WAS AN OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED A CHICK
 Of course Lucille Colandro has an 'old lady' book for every occasion, and this is her Easter version!
I made a pack that actually goes with every book in the series!

JUNIE B. JONES, FIRST GRADER
DUMB BUNNY
