I love being able to help my students create a special gift for a loved one. These Mother’s Day Mad Libs reinforce descriptive writing using C.S. Lewis’ writing as the model. The result is a sweet keepsake for someone special in the student’s life while also building good writing skills.
Mother’s Day Mad Lib Writing
My class just finished The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and I pulled a passage from the novel that provided a detailed character description. My students replaced key words from the passage with words of their own to create a new description about a person they know.
The idea can be adapted to any novel you are reading with your students, and the students could describe any special person in their life– not just their mom.
We printed the descriptions and added small pictures. We folded a small pocket folder using cardstock, and the kids took the finished craftivity home as a gift.
