Create your own library of Mother's Day books
Start reading Mothers Day books a week or two before Mother's Day to give students time to build an appreciation for what their mothers or primary caregivers do for them. Children tend to believe that they are the center of the universe and must be taught to recognize what others do for them.
Model gratitude and children will learn to do the same. Regularly tell students how much you are thankful for what they do and take time for your students to express what they appreciate about others.
