Mother's Day Links
Mother's Day (in the USA) is the second Sunday in May (in 2007 May 13th). I have always found doing mother's day activities to be a bit dicey in the classroom. Especially since I usually have at least one child whose mother has passed away, left or who is adopted and has a birth mother/mom dilemma. (On a personal level) I have always found it insulting when someone implies that making a mother's day card for your sister or aunt or whoever is just as good as making one for your mother; the person who says that invariably has a mother to give a card/gift to and doesn't know what it is like not to have a mother to give something to. That being said this year I happen to have a class that has no mother's day issues and plan to do a mother's day activity with them. In case your situation is such that you want to plan a mother's day activity here are some links to set you on your way.
