A Person I Treasure

Here's a little person I treasure...my granddaughter Meg...such a sweetie to me...

I love to get kids to write about people in their lives. They always have something really special to say. Our March "A Person I Treasure" writings to go along with our rainbows and "pots of gold" art are something I came up with when I found this cute "treasure chest" stationery.  



Lots of kids wrote about a brother or a sister...
And then I thought about adding lots of sequins and jewels to the chest for an art experience to decorate the treasure chest. It seems like when I add a simple art experience for motivation to finish a writing project I get a lot better results. Even if kids are not excited about writing are motivated to get to the fun part afterwards.
I know a lot of the kids really LOVED their pets and wrote about pets...
  I had 12 extra kids in my morning writing class so it took a while to edit 30 kids' writing but we got 'er done! Ye Hah! Here are their darling thoughts.....many about cherished pets.
And I think the majority of kids wrote about their moms....

Gotta love a good cat! 

This cracked me up....I love my mom because she's not very strict....darling! 

And who wouldn't treasure a "hysterical best friend?"  I would! 

Some wrote about friends in the class too...isn't that sweet? 

Ty wrote about his dad....I loved reading that too....really special! 

We did a sloppy copy first, then a teacher edit...then rewrote on nice paper...

They had to do a picture of themselves, and the person they treasured....

Then they had to decorate the treasure chest....don't ya love this rainbow chest?
Maybe a future design star in the making....
Here some more peeps that I treasure....my hubs and my youngest granddaughter Josie...so cute! 
What can I say? I'm a doting grandma!
