Elementary students recently hosted a Mother's Day Tea. All moms were invited to come have tea, juice, and pastries with their child(ren) and be guests of honor as each class performed a short program expressing how much we love and appreciate our moms. Our theme for this year's tea was "Queen for a Day". Each student made a crown for their mom to wear at the tea.
For those whose mothers were unable to attend, teachers filled in as substitute mothers. These girls were my adopted daughters for the morning - we jokingly called ourselves the Stevens family. Our fifth grade class opened the Mother's Day program with an original skit called "Best Mom in the World." We staged a game show in which six contestants sought to prove that they were the best mom in the world. In the end the audience voted and the results proved, with each student holding up one letter of this message, 'ALL MOMS ARE WONDERFUL!'
