Writing a Letter, Mother's Day, & a FREEBIE!

Did we make it to Friday?  The last few weeks of school are definitely "survival"!  This week was no different!  (But today was better....because it is my BIRTHDAY!!)

To top it of my sweet little students had to go to the ER from school and ended up with plastic surgery done to his face due to his injury!  (let's just say....a recess game turned bad quick!)  It was very scary!!

This week we jumped right back into writing a friendly letter! We always focus on the parts of a letter and make sure that each of our letters include these important parts!  We had fun with this little activity where the kiddos had to sort different greetings and closings!

They make their own little sorting folder using construction paper!
You can grab your FREE copy of this activity by clicking the picture below!

We also completed our anchor chart all about letters!

During our unit, we made these adorable little postal service hats as we worked on our letters!

What better way to conclude a letter unit than to write letters!  
With Mother's Day coming, they wrote to their mom! 

They made a little booklet for their mom that included some really fun activities!  They had their letter to mom, an interview about mom (these answers were HEE-LARIOUS!), some coupons, a mom-lib (a cute twist on mad-libs for their mom!), and a recipe for the perfect mom!

I just completed my new Writing a Letter packet....and you can check it out by clicking on the picture below!

Can you believe that Mother's Day is even here?!  We still have a few weeks left of school, but I know that time will FLY by!  Soon we will all be posting about our summer activities!

Have a great weekend and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!
