Every year I always try my best to find something worthy of our students' mothers to present them with on Mother's Day. This year we decided to connect our gift to our Growth Inquiry. I hope that this blog post celebrates how beautifully it all came together after I had set out the following invitation for learning (image on the right).
First the students painted sunflowers inspired by Van Gogh, and then made their moms a card of their process. Within each child's card there were also some sunflower seeds with a little note for the moms to plant them and sprout an inquiry within their home. The children even learned a song to sing from YouTube, and were encouraged to ask their Dad to find it on their computer, laptop, or smart device to accompany their singing!
Here are some pictures of our hard work:
I am so proud of our students for their dedication to this important project! Mrs. Ham and I hope that you all had a lovely Mother's Day!
Even though Mother's Day is over, maybe this post will provoke your class to begin a study of sunflowers!
