Adorable Mother's (or Father's!) Day Project

A quick and easy DIY gift for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, or even Father's Day! Printables included!

Today we worked on our Mother's Day gifts and I'm SO excited with how they turned out!!!

I made a poster (two pieces of butcher paper taped together): 


And set it up in our classroom:


Each kiddo had to finish the sentence "I love you because ______" for their moms or grandmas. They used the Big Words app on their iPads, and we took a picture...

They turned out ADORABLE! 




(I took the pictures with my iPad, then filtered them using the Camera + app.) 

I'm having them printed out, and we'll make a card with the pictures for their mom's tomorrow! 

If you'd like the "I love you because" letters, you can grab them {HERE!
(The font is from Miss Tiina!) Love! 

And this was just about the sweetest thing ever... 
One of my kids posted this on our class blog today about him mom! So. Stinkin'. Sweet!!!

  21. A case study task is a significant examination of a specific tight subject that requires profound examination, and students are encouraged to finish adequate case study to add to their basic intuition aptitudes and creativity. In addition, the paper requires genuine fixation on the issue, legitimate accumulation of certainties and proof and target examination of the advantages and disadvantages of the case. Understudies should examine elements that cause the issue and assess outcomes equitably. Clearly, this is difficult and all the time understudies should apply for reliable assistance from case study essay writing service that spend significant time in expert writing services.
