This Sunday is Mother’s Day. It’s lovely for the children to make something for their mother but equally this activity is an extra planned into a busy week. My aim is to plan these special activities relevantly in my program to meet the learning needs of my students. The children wanted to make a card so they became illustrators. They needed to write something special for mum to put in their card and a sentence to put on their gift. This became an authentic writing task for my students. I’ve included pictures of their little gift and beautiful cards.
