I expect that everyone is feeling a bit more chipper now that the days are getting longer and the snow is gone (I hope!!)
This time of year always feels like stepping in a rocket about to fly at warp speed. No sooner do we slumber out of the snow pants and indoor recess, than we head full throttle into end-of-year assessments, activities, placements, celebrations report cards, packing....
Does anyone else feel this way?
How does it sneak up on me year after year?
In all the craziness, we always make time to stop and celebrate mom. <3
Last year, I was part of Teachers Notebook Video Expo. I had such a great time presenting my Luau-Themed Mother's Day Unit, and I loved working with TN creators Debbie and Steve!
Part of this process was to create a video tutorial for each part of the unit. I had never done that before (eek!) but it was a great learning process for me.
I'd love to give you a peek of what's inside, but FIRST I have some giveaway news...take a look at these goodies I have for you today...the complete packet, plus TWO super cute drink tumblers to give (or keep!!).
I like to decorate my room Luau style (thank you dollar store in spring time!). The kids present their moms with a flower lei (that they can create) and then they take turns reading their biographies aloud.
Oh!! For even more sweetness, I have two special chairs placed in front of the room. Mom (or special lady) sits right up front as her kiddie is reading about her.
Your kids will love learning how to write these metaphors and mom will just swoon when she is told that she is loved more than peanut butter loves jelly! I like to use these at the end of the writing piece.
BRING ON THE TISSUES!
My videos have some craft tutorials in order to help you out...well, at least they may be good for a giggle!
