It's Halle from Across the Hall in 2nd Grade, and I am so happy to share a little Mother's Day Love with you today!
Mother's Day is such a special holiday. I don't think it's a secret that being a mom is the hardest job on the planet!
Have you seen this video for "World's Toughest Job?" , it's pretty funny, but I imagine also 100% true!
I also love it because I get to honor and celebrate my mom. And maybe I'm partial, but she pretty much is the best mom. Ever.
To celebrate Mother's Day with my students we make a craft from my TpT store, "My Heart Blooms for Mom". (Want to win it? Make sure to comment on this post!!)
I love it because it's easy to prepare, and even though my students are all competing the same craft, they are incredibly personal and different because of their answers.
I'm actually ahead of the game for once, and my students already completed theirs. Here are a few examples:
Love their responses!
This year I bought enough seed packets for each one of my students to include with their craft.
|The ones I bought are not nearly this cute :(|
We'll place their flower pot in a gift bag, and throw in the seeds for good measure, and viola!, instant, adorable keepsake for mom!
I also have my students complete this adorable freebie from Martha Stewart. You can grab it here. We'll roll it up and tie it with a piece of twine.
I've had a few moms ask to laminate it, they love it so much!
And there you have it...how we get ready for Mother's Day in 2nd Grade!
