Mother's Day

Our special day is called, Moms & Muffins.  When the moms arrive the students will meet them at the door and give them their special card.  (See below - so adorable)  The students will sing and dance the Tooty Ta, by Dr.  Jean with their moms.  We will sing a shorter version of  I Wish I Had A Little Red Box, by Dr. Jean (we use mom, grandma, dad, and mom again).  We say our tea pot poem and give our moms the card with a tea bag.  The last thing we do is read the book, Love You Forever.  I will read the story to the moms and the students will help me sing the verse - I love you forever, I like you for always, as long as I am living, my mommy you will be.  We make sure to give the moms tissues before we read the story!





Card:
Outside: I Will Always Love You Mommy...
Inside: Even When I Am All Grown Up! 


Teapot Saying:
Here's a gift for Mother's Day.
I'll try my best in every way.
But if you get upset with me...
Relax and have a pot of tea!

  6. Miss Ewshbaugh - you are welcome. I am planning on putting my teapot master on my shutterfly account on Monday.

    Janet - we send a note home asking the moms to find someone special to fill in their space so that everyone has someone there. For example: aunt, grandma, neighbor, etc. Once in a while we will have to have a foster grandparent who is working in the school spend the afternoon with a child.
