Keep It Simple: Free Mother's Day Gift Ideas!

In my district, Mother's Day is the Sunday before our second and final wave of testing. To say to we have limited time to stop and do something creative is an understatement. At the same time, I don't want high stakes testing to suck the fun out of the school year any more that it does. Plus, moms deserve to be recognized!

So here are some simple Mother's Day ideas that won't take too much time but I'm sure any mother will appreciate. And they are all FREE!

This first idea comes for Adventures of a Schoolmarm. Her Mother's Day Mini Book is perfect for upper elementary students.

As sad as it is to think of, some students don't have mothers, so Mother's Day can be tricky. I usually speak to the child individually and suggest they make a Mother's Day card for another special woman in their life, such as a grandmother or aunt. But sometimes just having it say "Mother's Day" can be too much for a student. So in my Mother's Day freebie I included a card that reads "Happy Spring" and a blank one for students who prefer not to make a "Mother's Day" card.

 This one was made for the child's grandmother
