Mother's Day Idea

Happy Friday Night!  
I know it's a late post, but maybe you could use it for Father's Day or next year?  This year in 5th grade I struggled to come up with cute holiday "stuff" for my kids to do until yesterday.  Yes, I said yesterday which is why this post is late. :)  My students posed with letters spelling mom for me.  We then created picture cards using the PicCollage app on the iPad.  I went to RiteAid and picked up the pictures for my students.  My total cost in the craft:  $3.42!!  That's what I'm talking about!!  The kids then created frames, art, or cards with the pictures for their moms.  I've blurred out the face on one of the cards so you could get the visual.  Some of the faces were so stinking cute I wish I could post them all for you to see...but I cant. :)  It was super cheap and with the letter cutting and picture taking process, I have a total of 1.5 hours in the entire project.  I hope you can use it some time.  I would love any upper grade suggestions for holiday "stuff".  Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Brandee!

      Thanks for finding me. It's so nice to continue to build a network of upper grade teacher bloggers! :) I'm your newest follower as well. I'm loving all of the literacy resources you have. This is my 4th year teaching; however, my 1st year in 5th grade. Thanks so much for the awesome workstation binder ideas and student motivation for writing suggestions. I'm going to get on it after we do our state testing in 2 weeks! Keep in touch! ;))
