When Is Mother's Day 2023?First thing's first: When is this holiday going to happen? Mother's Day is traditionally celebrated on the second Sunday in May. The holiday will be marked on May 14, 2023. Of course that means Mother's Day isn't a school day, but if you're incorporating Mother's Day activities into classroom planning, you'll want to finish everything up by the weekend so students can celebrate with moms, grandmas, and other loved ones.
How to Celebrate Mother's Day in the Classroom
- Have students create cards or crafts for a mom or someone special as a class project. This gives students a chance to practice handwriting, letter writing, and other skills with real-world application.
- Have students write essays or stories about their mothers, grandmothers or another loved one for the holiday and share them with the class. Again, this is a great way to practice writing skills while also creating a special memento.
- Have students make and decorate a flower pot. This can be a great science lesson wrapped into the spring holiday.
- Create a ‘Memory Lane’ corner in your classroom. Students can bring in a photo of their mother (or another special person) and write a brief message on what they love the most about their mother. This is a great chance to practice using describing words.
