Happy Teacher Day to all my teacher friends in blog land! Hope you all had an OUTSTANDING day. :) I have been super busy this year both at school and home with my photography business, which is why I haven't posted since August. (Shame on me.) I hope to do better from here on out. (Fingers crossed!) Today my kids and I worked on a Mother's Day project, since Mother's Day is right around the corner.

(cooks really good)
We read the book My Mom's the Best by Rosie Smith and Bruce Whatley (a new addition to my classroom library from Scholastic Book Clubs) and wrote on our page why our moms are the best. We then used our fingers to paint a flower in our frame; however, you could really do anything in the frame. I had the idea after I had started with the flower of having the kids draw a picture of their mom. We also decorated a piece of construction paper to use as the background.
If you would like to use this with your students, you can pick it up for free in my TeachersPayTeachers store or my Teacher's Notebook store. Just use the links at the bottom of this post. I would also love it if you would follow my blog and stores! Oh and by the way, I am having a sale in BOTH shops for Teacher Appreciation. Stop by and check it out! Also, I would love any feedback that you might have. ;)
