    mother's day without a mom Link to this post

    i love all the mother's day and father's day craft ideas but have two children in my class without moms - one whose mom died and the other girl was adopted by a gay couple. in our school we try to celebrate mothers day and fathers day together so no children are left out. would love any other tips from other teachers though!

    That's a good idea to put them together! I haven't had that problem in any of my classes yet but I'll keep it in mind for the future. One idea is maybe to talk about "mother figures" - aunts, godmothers, babysitters, etc. who are important to the kids?

    Hi S P, 
    You bring up a good point, and this will be important over Father's Day as well. I like Heather's suggestion about picking a mother or father figure, whether he/she is related or not. Let us know what works in your classroom!

    Hello everybody! The daughter of my friend is studying in a group where there are single-parent families. Instead of the traditional father or mother days, they made a family day.

    Sorry this is a little late, but it may be useful to others or for Mother's Day next year. I like the idea of talking about it being a 'family day' too. A friend recommended a book called Part of the Party - it's written for kids in kindergarten and is about a koala who has two dads and feels left out of the mom and daughter disco.
