Mother's Day Writing Contest to Build Engagement and Skill
Celebrate Mother’s Day with a project that shows off writing skills learned over the year and promotes high student engagement. When I was in elementary school, a local grocery store sponsored a writing contest that I thought was super cool. Students wrote “I love my mom because . . . ” essays, and the store gave out flowers and grocery store gift cards throughout the district. Our first grade updated and adopted that contest with great results.
