Hats off to mothers
Friend May 1983, songs added by
I thought I would share my ideas of what I'm planning to
do for Mothers day in sacrament.
What I decided to do was teach an easy song, "Mother Dear"
and then have certain children recite and wear a hat to a part of a poem
called Hat Off to Mothers by Janice Gardiner Wright.
The poem and visual can be found in the Friend May 1983
Sharing Time: Remember Mother.
During music time for mothers day I plan on making the hats and poster by
putting songs that correspond with each hat description.
HATS OFF TO MOTHERS
- My mommy's a nurse who fixes and patches
All of my hurts and my sores and my scratches.
- My mother's a chef who fixes each dinner
Fit for a king-a blue ribbon winner!
- My mom's a chauffeur who drives pretty slow
But gets me to places where I need to go.
- My mom's a detective, and none is greater
At getting the truth from me sooner or later.
- My mommy's a gardner and works really hard,
Planting and weeding and grooming our yard.
- My mother's a maid-at least that's what she said-
'cause she cleans up the house and makes every bed.
- My mothers an angel-a queen in disguise-
who teaches the gospel with tears in her eyes.
Today take these hats off, and please wear no other,
Let me do your work, to show I LOVE YOU, MOTHER!
