Mother’s Day 2014

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Mum’s around the world!

The celebration of Mother’s Day began in America in 1908 and was created by a lady named Anna Jarvis. She wanted a day where people could honor their Mother’s, and from there countries like Australia followed in their footsteps.

On Friday our class made Mother’s Day cards to give to all our caring, supportive and loving Mum’s. As the cards were pop up cards, we used our fine motor skills of cutting along with persistence and patience to create them. We tried our best with making our cards and wrote a beautiful poem inside especially for our Mum’s. We hope the Mother’s in Room 9 enjoy reading their cards today.

We hope that all the special Mother’s out there feel appreciated and loved today and every other day of the year!

    1. Dear Gracie,
      That is bad luck the card broke but I am sure your Mum loved it anyway because you put so much effort into it! It is always nice to relax with your mum and spend time together. A comfortable jacket sounds like a great gift and I am sure she will use it this winter!

    On Mothers day my family and I went to Port Adelaide to go the Dolphin Ferry for lunch . I had Calamari it was alright . I love my Mum to pieces and I will never forget her she’s also helped me through hard times same as you Mrs Baldwin. Because she’s helped me so much she deserved a fluffy onesie and a nice movie to go with it .

    From Anika

    1. Dear Anika,
      A Dolphin Ferry ride sounds like a wonderful way to spend Mother’s Day and hopefully you got to see some dolphins. It is always comforting to have your Mum around to help you when you need it and I am glad to hear she helps you. A fluffy onesie sounds like the perfect thing to wear when watching a movie. It sounds like you really enjoyed Mother’s Day!

    My mothers day was great. First we gave her our gifts and she loved my card then we went to Cafe de grove at Garden Grove and my Mama and Papa were there and also Uncle Donald and Trish were there. There was a small playground there, a very big shop and a large plant shop as well. I love my mum so much because she does so many special things for me. To describe my mum in 1 word it would be…. amazing.

    In 1 word how would you say your mothers day was?

    1. Dear Brodie,
      Your Mother’s Day sounds wonderful. It sounds like you got to see a lot of your family and eat some yummy food! As I could not spend Mother’s Day with my Mum because she lives in Mount Gambier, my Mother’s Day was not very different to a normal Sunday. However I will answer your question by describing my Mum in 1 word and that would be ‘loving’.
      From Mrs Baldwin

      1. Dear Mrs Baldwin
        Is you’re mum like that mum who is always so nice until you do 1 little thing wrong and she gets mad and starts yelling at you because mine is sorta like that.
        From Brodie

  8. Dear mrs Baldwin

  10. Dear mrs Baldwin,
    on mother’s day I set up a picnic and invited all of my family over and we played a big basket ball game and of course my team won how did your’s go.
    From Jess

    1. Dear Jess,
      A picnic with the family sounds lovely. It sounds like you had a wonderful time outdoors playing games and having loads of fun. My Mother’s Day was quiet because my mum doesn’t live in Adelaide. Glad to hear you spent quality time with your mum and the rest of your family.

    I have a turtle at home his name is Squirtle he is ten times bigger
    than Kevin and much older too.
    My tank is much bigger than Kevin’s.
    My sister’s turtle died last year which was very sad.
