Grandparents Day Resources

When I Am Old With You from Made for 1st Grade
1
Students can write about some of the special people in their life and what they would want to do with them if they could be old with them.

Grandparents Day Resources from LMN Tree

Grandparents are special people. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about my grandfather who was the sweetest and kindest man and who was always there for me when I needed someone to talk to. When I taught in Alaska we had a program called “Grandparents in our Schools” where Seniors helped teachers and students several times a week. We were fortunate to have 2 wonderful “grandpas”. Many of you teach in Title I schools where many of your students come from single parent homes or dysfunctional ones and these “grandpas” filled a much needed void that was missing in their lives. The Sunday after Labor Day is the day we celebrate Grandparents and I wanted to share some great resources for celebrating it in your classrooms.

6
Grandparents Day Activity – Grandparent’s Day is celebrated on September 7, 2014, so spend the next week showing your students how to honor their grandparents by studying their unique heritage from their grandparents. They will determine the various traits they have inherited and customs and traditions which have been passed down to them from both sides of their family. They can build a model of a grandparent to show clothes of a particular type of heritage to share with the rest of their class.

This activity packet includes a cover and page for a mini-book or card that can be given to Grandparents to honor them, even if it is after Grandparent’s Day. The focus is on inherited traits and/or traditions from grandparents so that students can learn to understand and appreciate the differences of others. The activity can be incorporated as a social studies activity as a study of cultures where students can be assigned the task of completing a clothespin figure representing their heritage and then share it with the class.

Grandparent’s Day
Quick Writes

Grandparent’s Day 2015 is September 13th!

We use these as weekly quick writes for morning work. After we spend some time working on answering in complete sentences, students are able to write one or two sentences to quickly respond to the prompts. Students get these on Monday and keep them in their writing folders. I collect them on Friday. They keep a writing rubric in their writing folders so they know what I am looking for and what will be graded each month.

THIS QUICK WRITE PACK is a SPECIAL EDITION for Grandparent’s Day. There is one week of quick writes, directly relating to Grandparent’s Day, BUT you are given several choices.
There are choices for: Grandparents, Grandma and Grandpa

Hope your kiddos and the Grandparents in their lives enjoy the fun Freebie!
