Happy Mother’s Day!

mothersDayRoses, cards, chocolates, cookies, breakfast in bed, you-name-it, Mother’s Day sure brings out the sweetest in us. Celebrated on the second Sunday in May each year, Mother’s Day is a time to honour our one and only – our precious Mother (or a mother figure in our life).

I am sure I speak on behalf of many moms out there when I say the most precious gift we can receive on Mother’s Day is one that is especially handcrafted for us. As a teacher I keep this in mind as we set out to cut, glue and craft a personal treasure that Mom will want to keep around for a very long time (if not forever). 

Below is a poem I wrote and plan to share with my students this week. Keeping in mind that not all children may have a mother in their life, I left the recipient open to include a figure that takes the place of a dominant caregiver, whether it be a grandmother, aunt, sister, etc.

For this year’s Mother’s Day craft, my students will be making a mobile frame, with the theme of my latest poem in mind. Here is a sample of the finished product.

  1. Thank you SO much for sharing this! I have been searching for something different to give as Mother’s Day gifts from my Kinders this year. I have two students whose Mom’s are unfortunately not in their lives. Your poem and craft idea is wonderful!

    • Thank you Rebecca. I’m happy to share, especially when I know it will help our students feel included. And Mothers/caregivers sure do deserve it! 🙂 Thank you

  2. Thank you so much. I just went to the dollar store and bought these bird feeders for my classroom moms. This poem is just perfect to add to it. I will take a picture of the finished product.

  3. Wow, I must say, this is by far one of the nicest Mother’s Day poems I have ever come across. I came to your site off a Facebook link in a Teachers group. Thank you for sharing your talent. I am going to use your craft and poem with my grade 1 class (admittedly, I shed a tear reading it – I have three kids of my own, call me a sentimental mom). Thanks again. Melinda
