There’s no doubt that mothers and other caregivers are important figures in our lives. They teach us, guide us, influence us, and cheer us on. Note that not all of us have mothers in the traditional sense and may turn to other family members or loved ones for advice, support, or encouragement. So, this Mother’s Day, let us celebrate not only the women who gave birth to us but also the amazing role models who have enriched our lives.
Fun Mother's Day Classroom Activities for Primary and Middle School Students
For all the teachers out there seeking fun school Mother's Day celebration ideas and activities for your students, look no further!
1. Making Cards
Cards allow students to express gratitude and appreciation for the women or caregivers in their lives. It’s also an opportunity for students to get creative! You will need:
- Construction paper (various colors)
- Crayons, colored pencils, and/or markers
- Stickers, glitter, and anything else you can think of to make the cards colorful and fun!
While the specific writing requirement attached to this activity will vary depending on the age group, one idea is for middle schoolers to write one to two properly structured paragraphs. You may ask them to provide reasons to celebrate their caregiver, or to write a reflection on their favorite memory with this person.
