A Gratitude Booklet Makes a Special Gift

Here's a great idea for a heartfelt gift for for Mother's Day, Father's Day, or any occasion.

 This is a creative writing unit that requires students to research one of their family members or significant friends and create a gratitude booklet. They will enjoy learning more about the history of their family and experience the joy of giving a truly unique and special gift. Students will:

             write interview questions.

             interview family members.

             write a biographical sketch.

             write and edit anecdotes. 

             locate or take photos of the subject of their gratitude booklet.

             compile a gratitude booklet.

             present the completed booklet to their subject as a special gift.

 The booklet can include photos, drawings, a biographical sketch, and testimonial statements from the students and from others who know their subject well.

An example would be that a student interviews his or her mother and then writes a biographical sketch. If possible, they will include old photos and current photos. Then, they would interview their mother's friends and relatives and collect anecdotes and statements from them to include in their booklet. 

 After the booklet is complete, they would present it to their mother on Mother's Day as a priceless gift. I have included sample pages from a gratitude booklet in the product.
