I am sure we all can remember creating cute little cards for mom on her day when we were young, but when did the home made cards stop?
Surely middle school.
I do not recall making any type of cuteness past 3rd grade. I assume the lack of home made cards for mom stop happening at school for several reasons:
lack of supplies
academics take center stage
the uncomfortableness if a student does not have a mom
Well, I am set to change the lack of home made cards for some moms or mother figures this year. I have one class of "exploratory wheel" which according to the state of Florida is where students explore different aspects of careers, but since I lack curriculum for this we just explore different topics.
This week is full of card making. Today the students wrote five teachers appreciation letters in the form of a "high five" and then this Thursday they are making some good ole' mothers day cards. I am thinking something in the form of this...of course we will replace the scribbles with words.
