Kindergarten Readiness – Making Mother’s Day Cards

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. Making a Mother’s Day card is much more than an old, traditional activity. By drawing, coloring and even just copying the words, the child is participating in a very grown-up task, that of communicating in a written form.  A key concept for learning to read is that pictures and letters are a way of showing and talking on paper.

Not only is the project  meaningful and creative, children feel a sense of accomplishment and practice one way to express emotion. The pleasure that mom’s and grandma’s and caregivers show enhances the child’s sense of self-worth and importance.  There’s lots of learning in making a card and lots of memories for moms.  Have a Happy Mother’s Day.
