The Kindergarten class has been quite busy these last few weeks preparing for our very special Mother’s Day Tea. Our moms spend so much time taking care of us, it’s time we take care of mom! And the students were VERY excited to do just that!
The festivities began as each mother was escorted to her special seat by her child. Mom’s were encouraged to dress for high tea and wear a fancy hat. Each student made a fancy hat, complete with tissue paper flower, as well.
The tables were decorated by artwork created by the children. First, each student painted and glazed a ceramic tea cup and saucer for mom. What a wonderful, timeless memento these moms could take home and cherish for years to come.
The students also painted a glass vase, using gerbera daisies as inspiration. The vase was filled with a bouquet of gerbera daisies that each student picked on our field trip on Tuesday.
After listening to a heartwarming story about the importance of a hug from one’s mother, students read books they had each written especially for their moms.
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
My mom really loves flowers and watermelon.
My mom and I like to play soccer.
My mom’s favorite clothes to wear are stretchy pants.
My mom and I like to eat snacks.
My mom is beautiful because she brushes my hair.
My mom’s favorite thing to do is sleep.
My mom always tells me, “Brush your hair.”
