Bulletin Board

This show stopping bulletin board is the perfect way to show appreciation to your students' mothers. Title the bulletin board "Moms Are Special" and have each student write and illustrate why they think their mom is special. Add a photo and attach a ribbon to each students' piece. The result is a stunning display for all of the moms.

Tea-rrific Moms

A perfect way to celebrate Mother's Day is to treat all of the mother's to a tea party to show them how terrific they really are. Invite each mother to the classroom for some afternoon tea. Have students make each mother a card. On the card write, "You are"...and in the middle of the card, "Tea-rrific." Tape a tea bag onto the inside of the card. You may wish to compliment the afternoon tea with fun appetizers, such as mini cupcakes, tea sandwiches or even croissants.
