Let me show you  a closer look!

There are actually six different covers that you can choose from for this activity. Both male and female students can choose to make one for their mom, aunt, or grandma. Your fast finishers can make multiple ones! 
I had my five year old (who's not yet in Kindergarten) make a sample so that you can see the steps students need to take to complete this project. 
Start by having them pick a cover and color it. 
Then they can grab a pencil and fill out the beginner writing portions of all the pages included. The first page has the "All About" and "Favorites" tabs. I know you can't see it in this picture, but she thinks that I only weigh 30lbs! Woo-hoo, lol! 
The next page encourages students to write about something their mother, aunt, or grandma dislikes. My daughter knows me well...she wrote that I dislike fits! Then she drew a picture of her brother and sister throwing fits - ha! 
Next, students will draw a portrait of their special person. For the record, I don't own a pair of yellow pants...but maybe she wishes I did?
Then they will write out what dreams their special person has. My big dreams for life are apparently to get out of the house for a change!
Finally, they write 5 reasons why they love their mom, aunt, or grandma.
Time to cut it all out! Simple cutting and easy assembly allows for all students to happily succeed.
Now throw some math in there, and have your students practice measuring by laying out the tabs from shortest to tallest!

Glue the tabs together to make a flip book!
Now your students can take turns reading their flip books to their peers before taking them home to make their special someone feel extra loved!
