Mothers' Day / Mother's Day


EFL/ESL Activities for Mother's Day at bottom of page


Mother's Day is the second Sunday in May.

Origin of American Mothers'Day:

Probably, mid May was chosen, because most women who become mothers, become mothers in Spring.

To learn more about the actual history of how it became a national holiday ,

American Mothers'Day Traditions:

Traditions include giving flowers to one's mother, cooking all the meals if still living with one's mother; or taking her out for dinner if not living with her.

Giving Mothers' Day cards is very common, as well.  Some people make their own cards, and write sentimental things, like what I've written below. 

 


 


ESL/EFL activities on Mothers' Day.

TESL/TEFL activities on Mother's Day.

To ESL/EFL Teachers:

First of all, you need to find out when Mothers' Day is in the country wherein you teach.

Korea has no Mothers' Day, but there is a Parent's Day, sometime in May (as is Children's Day and Teachers' Day).

China's Mothers' Day is the same as the American one.

Secondly, you need to adapt your lesson to the level of your students:

If teaching children, have them make Mothers' Day cards in English.  You may have to tell them what to write.  A good one is:

"Roses are red, Violets are blue, Sugar is sweet, and I love you."

 

If teaching older children, have them make a poem of their own.

If teaching adults, have them discuss Mother's Day traditions, in their respective countries.

You could also, suggest they pay for one month of English lessons for their mother as a Mothers' Day gift.  (Ha, ha, ha).

If teaching business persons, you could have them discuss the way to comercialize and capitalize upon Mothers' Day.
