What is Mother's Day?
Mother's Day is a celebration honoring mothers and celebrating motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, yet most commonly in March, April, or May. It complements Father's Day, the celebration honoring fathers. Celebrations of mothers and motherhood occur throughout the world; many of these can be traced back to ancient festivals, like the Greek cult to Cybele or the Roman festival of Hilaria. The modern US holiday is not directly related to these. One of the early calls to celebrate a Mother's Day in the United States was the "Mother's Day Proclamation" by Julia Ward Howe. Written in 1870, it was a pacifist reaction to the carnage of the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War. The Proclamation was tied to Howe's feminist belief that women had a responsibility to shape their societies at the political level.

About Mother's Day Worksheets
Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to encourage your students to talk about their mothers, parents, and families in general. For younger students a fun craft activity would allow them to create a great Mother’s Day card while older students might prefer more of a guided discussion. With 40 worksheets, Busy Teacher can help you plan the best Mother’s Day class for every age level. This Mother's Day game is popular with busy teachers. It is a simple but cute game that focuses on what makes mom happy (and unhappy); it’s especially appropriate for pre-intermediate students. Students play in groups of between two to four, take turns rolling a die, and follow the directions on the cards. You can add or substitute cards if you would like your students to focus on specific vocabulary. Be sure that students understand the cards well enough to play on their own before having students form groups. If this game is not suitable for your class, browse through the section to find a worksheet that is.
