Lesson Plan Title : Mother's Day Story

Age Range: Kindergarten through grade 2 (Primary)

Overview and Purpose: This activity has students choose words from the word wall and incorporate them into a story about Mother's Day. The children can then practice their words by taking turns reading each other's books.

Objective: The student will be able to write and illustrate a story about Mother's Day using words from the word wall.


Lined paper

Construction paper


Crayons/markers/colored pencils


Brass brads


Have students write a story about Mother's Day using as many words from the word wall as they can. Have them underline the words that they use. They can cut out the words, glue them to the construction paper, and then illustrate the story. Fasten the pages together with the brads and let the students take turns practicing their words by reading each other's books.

Wrap Up:

Some students might need a story starter. You can brainstorm with the class some beginning sentences to help them get started. Send the books home with the students the Friday before Mother's Day and have them share their stories with their families.
