What are the perfect Mother's Day gifts? Flowers, breakfast in bed and a poem. You're on your own with the flowers and breakfast but I can help with the sentiment. This is called a "diamante" and is based on grammar not rhyme. It even looks kind of cool - like a diamond and you know what they say...?
Choose 2 words - mine were Mother and Day, but you might choose Grandmother/Grandchild or Flowers/Breakfast (what ever). Next, a kind of MadLibs happens.
1st line: One Noun (Mother)
2nd line: Two adjectives (relating to first noun - Mother)
3rd line: Three participles ("ing" words)
4th line: Four nouns (first 2 relating to the first noun and second 2 relating to the final noun)
5th line: Same as the 3rd line but relating to the final noun
6th line: Two adjectives (for final noun)
7th line: final noun (Day)
Let the children help. I'm sure you can come up with better words than mine. Write it on a card with her flowers and place them on the breakfast tray.
