This is a free lesson for Mother's Day! This free lesson pack is for teachers of elementary to junior high school students who are looking for something fun and a little different for this year's Mother's Day.
The pack includes everything you need to teach a full class with reading, writing, and class discussion and pairwork. Minimal preparation is required and the different files are independent of each other. So if you only want to use the worksheets and you don't want to use the powerpoint, it still works fine.
The lesson pack includes:
1. A set of 4 worksheets. The worksheets provide a class discussion activity about Mother's Day to warm the students up. It then has an article with little-known facts about Mother's Day. It is meant to spur further discussion among students in the class. There is a short quiz to check reading comprehension of the article and then some interview questions and a crossword puzzle (to help students retain new vocabulary). There is also a writing prompt at the end of the worksheet to get students thinking and creating independently!
2. A colorful powerpoint file that is meant to guide the class through the lesson and explain the activities. It can be used to help keep the students on-task by showing them what activities they should focus on during the lesson.
3. An audio MP3 file of the article on the worksheet. This can be used to help students read along to the article at their own pace. It also gives students a sense of natural rythym, stress, and tone. This is especially useful for LD readers.
