Mother's Day Songs

Mother’s day songs are a great activity to use when teaching children about mother’s day. Not only does it incorporates music into the child’s day but also captures the child’s attention. It doesn’t hurt that it is fun for teacher, parent, and child.

Coming up with mother’s day songs isn’t very hard to do. Many children’s tunes can be converted into mother’s day songs. “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” makes can be used along with your own words.

The key is keeping the words simple. This way the children understand the words. It also helps when looking for words that rhyme together. Since children’s songs are not lengthy it won’t be too hard to come up with something.

The good thing about using an old children’s song to come up with a new mother’s day song is that the tune is already familiar to the children. Children learn from repetition so old children’s tunes never get old, or at least not to them.

School teachers and daycare workers can even organize a get together in honor of the mothers where their children can sing the mother’s day songs to them in person. You can even have the printed out mother’s day songs to give to the parents. This is a great way to interact with parents and strengthen the parent-teacher bond that is valuable.

Instruments can be made to accompany the little songsters. Drums are easily made out of pots and pans and wooden spoons. In fact, symbols can also be made out of the lids of pots and pans. Homemade guitars can be made with rubber bands and a hollow container.

Whether you go all out with your mother’s day songs or just sit around after nap time and sing a few songs, your children and students will love it. In fact, I am sure that you will also get a kick out of it.
