Students create a book of collected "memories of mom" as a very special Mother's Day gift. Included: Ten writing prompts for students.
journal, writing, prompt, mother, Mother's Day, family, memory
In the week leading up to Mother's Day, invite students to choose from a list of writing prompts. The prompts provided below are designed to get students thinking about special things their mothers do with them or for them. Students should choose a different prompt to respond to each day. (A single paragraph is probably appropriate for most grades.) At the end of the week, students combine their pages to create a special "Memories of Mom" book to give their mothers for Mother's Day.
Students who do not have a mother in the home can write about a special person in their lives.
Sample Writing Prompts
Invite students to brainstorm new ideas to add to the list or to write about another topic that is special to them, even if it isn't on the list.
