Fruity Fun
Reading/Health/Art Read aloud Henry and Mudge and the Funny Lunch by Cynthia Rylant (Simon & Schuster, 2004) about Henry and his father making wonderful food designs for Mother's Day gifts. Students can draw their own food inventions to place inside a Mother's Day card.

Food Fractions
Math/Health Find a couple of simple recipes for healthy snacks (like the one presented here, or for trail mixes, etc.) that your class can make for an afternoon poetry reading or a Mother's Day celebration. Have some groups double a recipe or triple one, practicing math and getting a little practice in an important life skill.

Frozen Fruit Cones

2/3 cup fresh fruit
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup nonfat plain yogurt
4 ice cream cones

Combine the first three ingredients and blend together, then place them in a baking dish, cover and place in a freezer for two hours. Then scoop some of the mixture into cones and serve.

Mother's Day
Mother's Day is a delightful story about a boy who, with the help of his father, prepares breakfast for his mom on Mother's Day. Illustrations reinforce the repetitive text pattern.
