At Tiny Acorns we really love our moms! Last week we talked about why we love our moms, read books about mothers, and created beautiful gifts for our beautiful mamas!
We decorated flower pots with beads, then Maria took pictures of the all the children, and glued the pictures on the pots! Later we planted our Mother's Day pots with care, love, and intense concentration. The flowers we used are annuals, and will bloom all summer if given light, water, and pruning (just take off the dead flower heads so that new ones can grow).
Eliana taught the children a Spanish tongue-twister about mothers:
Yo amo a mi mama
(It means, my mama spoils me, my mama loves me, and I love my mama)
We also asked all the kids, why do you love your mother? Here are their answers in alphabetical order:
Ajooni: Because she plays with me
Baxter: Because when she goes to work, I still love her
Eli: Because she helps me
Evi: Because she hugs me
Guy: Because she always picks me up
Liam: Because I do! Because she plays with me
Lola: Because mama does everything
Oscar: Because she sometimes lets me watch her phone in the car
Pearl S.: Because she made me a big sister, and her kisses
Pearlie A.: Because she gives me candy!
Penny: Because she helps me do things I like to do, like collage
Sam: Because she reads me books
Simone: Because of her hugs
Tessa: Because she makes things
Theo: Because she gives me hugs
Well, we all love you too, because you made such sweet kids!
