So far this week we’ve been trying to finish up our Mother’s Day gifts. We had the children paint small wooden hearts and larger wooden rectangles. Each was painted in a different color and I hot glued the hearts to the center of the rectangle. At the top we stamped “Happy Mother’s Day” and I wrote the child’s name in the heart. They really did turn out very cute! I attached a magnet to the back and we’ve been working on wrapping them in tissue paper this week – only 4 more to go!
We’ve also been reading books about moms in class. We read “Just Me and My Mom” (we are fond of the Little Critter series in my class) and this morning we read “Love You Forever” – one of my personal favorites! The children really enjoyed this book – I was glad! We talked about all they ways our moms show us they love us. Then we talked about all the ways we can show mom how we love her – it was a good discussion!
After our discussion we practiced our graduation songs – and after only 3 days of practice – they almost have the first song down! I was sooo proud of them! They’re quick learners! It helps that they really love both songs! 🙂 Overall, a great day…
I almost forgot: HAPPY TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!!! I hope all of you teachers out there have a great one! Mine was made better this afternoon when a mother gave both of us flowers….how sweet! 🙂
