A poem for Mother's Day

The afternooners wrote a poem for their mothers yesterday.  We began this work by thinking of words that came into our mind when we thought of our mothers.
We had the children write them on sticky notes so they could be arranged and moved around.
 This is what they wrote:
Hug Kiss Cutest
Best Cook Baking
Brownies Muffins
The children put a lot of thought in how to arrange the words.  It was wonderful to watch them work this out as a group. 
After the words were written, they flipped the watercolor paper over and used crayons and watercolors for a wax-resist art project.

Happy Mother's Day to all of our amazing Mothers!!
