Second Grade “Mother’s Day Portraits”
The second graders honored their mothers with a special Mother’s Day breakfast. In preparation of the day, the students had painted portraits of their mothers and wrote a brief tribute on paper butterflies that explained what makes their mothers so special to them. On the morning of the breakfast, the children began by serving their mothers fresh fruit, bagels, and juice. While everyone dined, the second graders took turns reading their tributes. Finally, the mothers were asked to try and find their portrait amongst all the ones hanging on the walls. It was great fun to see the mothers trying to find their child’s art work!
