May’s Pinterest Pick 3 Linky

Main Pick 3 Graphic May

Welcome to May's Pick 3 Party hosted by Marissa from the Inspired Owl's Corner, Lisa from PAWSitively Teaching, and  Ashley from Just Reed! It's hard to believe it's May already, the weather is getting warmer and the end of another school year is near!  I found some cool pins that may be  inspiring for two big occasions in May--Mother's Day and Memorial Day.

Mother's Day

When I saw this pin I thought, "Here's a great Mother's Day card any mother would like!"  I think all mothers like to read what their children have to say about them. I like the fact that it is somewhat of a brainstorming activity for kids to focus on many of mom's attributes. The teacher-author who created this used similes "Mom is as ____ ." The kids will love this "informal" writing activity too.

Tea Party Placemat

This pin is especially near and dear to my heart this month as I just finished a blog post about hosting a tea in your classroom for Mother's Day--although it does not have to be held this week. It could also be a year-end celebration. In the post I highlighted a few ideas to make your tea a "fancy" tribute for mom. This pin shows a simple way to make no-cost placemats that are adorable. Using different colors could give them a more formal feel. If you are interested in hosting a tea in your classroom, check out my blog post.  Be sure to tell me what you think. Here's the link.

Here's a cool pin for Memorial Day! It's so important to teach our kids about the men and women who have fought and died for our freedoms. This website offers a few different free posters you can use for Memorial Day and other patriotic holidays.
