Mother's Day

photo by F.Muñoz
While in Spain, Mother's Day is on the 1st Sunday in May, in the USA is on the 2nd one, also in May; whereas Mothering Sunday in the UK is on the 4th Sunday during Lent. Mothers always encourage us to do our best, this is why I have chosen the following video since Olympic Games will be held in London in 2012.


We are going to start writing a poem to our mothers using their own letters acrostic. For instance, in my case would be

Here is the history of the origin of the holiday. After  viewing it, you should answer the following questions

  1. What goddess did the Roman worship as the Mother?
  2. Explain the origin of Mothering Day.
  3. Who was Anna Jarvis?
  4. What was her mother's favourite flower?
  5. Did she have children?

Love your mum, think of her and wish she were with you and remember

At 4 years old "Mum knows everything"
At 8 years: "Mom knows a lot"
At 12 years " it seems that Mom does not know much"

Red for the living mothers and white for those who passed away
At 14,"Mom does not know anything."
At 16, "Mom does not know".

The ballot will evolve when independence is gained, is flown from the nest and now it seems we need the help of the mother who bore us:
At 25, "Just Mom knows this,"
At 35 "before deciding, just ask Mom, "will not be that ...". 
At age 45, "What Mama think of this?".
And 75 years: "How I wish I could ask you this ... Mom."

We will be doing the following alphabetical order activities for mum's day
With each carnation leaves, we will use an adjective to describe our mums.

To end up we are going to match the baby animals with their mothers.

These are some of my students works:

Cute, beautiful, there are a lot of
