Mother’s Day is just around the corner, the day to celebrate and recognize the most important educators in a student’s life. Celebrating Mother’s Day gives students the opportunity to focus on the important adults in their lives, as well as learn about their peer’s families. We know students love to make their mothers feel extra special on their big day, and in our classroom, we also know it is about showing appreciation to our mothers everyday. Here are a few activities and crafts for students to get their “Thank you Mom” gears in motion!
- Tea Pot Poem – Teatime is Mom’s relaxation time, so why not give her a head start with a cut out teapot poem. Attach mom’s favourite teabag to the spout!
