Below you will find a couple of songs I have written to be used for Mother’s Day themed lesson plans or play time.
However, please keep in mind that, while Mother’s Day is a wonderful holiday, it can be hard for some. After losing my own mother I’m more aware of the fact that some children may have lost or never known one or both parents. They may also not live with their parents at all. Any of these situations can cause children to have many different feelings about Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.
Many teachers make the choice of whether to do themed songs or activities for these occasions. Discussion is always a great idea and works wonders even with the littlest little.
Now, without further ado, here are some songs and activities to add to your Mother’s Day repertoire. Lyrics, and props used, for the songs can be found here.
“MOMMA MOMMA, I LOVE YOU”
This song is really easy to do a cappella with clapping. It also offers some action steps towards the end. So be sure to stand up and move!
