Creating Get Well Cards for a Favorite Teacher
A favorite teacher was absent for 3 days last week, and her kids missed her terribly.
What a great opportunity to do some meaningful writing by creating "Get Well" cards. This provided lots of practice in using the teacher's tape dispenser.
Spruce up the lined paper--cut out heart shapes for pasting personal messages onto the card.
The students told me what they wanted to write and I modeled it on my lined paper for them to copy onto their heart-shaped paper.
