Whose love is warm and true,

And home has always been “sweet home”

With a wonderful mother like you!

Don’t say, ‘What for?’ and ‘Why?’

I like the way you cook.

Now what I really want to say is:

Happy Mother’s Day!”

(МР 4 Приложение 2, слова для детей - Приложение 10)

L1: Mother’s day is a wonderful holiday. There are some facts about this holiday.

L 2: The earliest history of Mother’s Day dates back to the ancient times. The Greeks to held festivities honor Rhea, wife of Cronus and the mother of many deities of Greek mythology.

L. 1: The ancient Romans, too, celebrated a spring festival, called Hilaria dedicated to Cybele, a mother goddess. The celebration lasted for three days and included parades, games and masquerades.

L. 2: The early Christians celebrated a Mother's Day of on the fourth Sunday of Lent in honor of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ. But then the custom of celebrating Mothering Sunday died out almost completely by the 19th century.

L.1: The story of Mother’s Day began in the USA with the efforts of a dynamic writer and poetess, Julia Ward Howe in 1872. She initiated a Mothers' Peace Day observance on the second Sunday in June in Boston and held the meeting for a number of years. Her idea spread but was later replaced by the Mothers' Day holiday now celebrated in May.

L. 2: Mother`s day was celebrated first in 1908 in America. Anna Jarvis is recognized as the Founder of Mother’s Day in the USA. Though Anna Jarvis never married and never had kids, she is also known as the Mother of Mother’s Day, an apt title for the lady who worked a lot to bestow honor on all mothers.

L.1: The hard work paid off. By 1911, Mother's Day was celebrated in almost every state in the Union and on May 8, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson signed a Joint Resolution designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day. The symbol of the holiday were Carnations Anna’s mother favorite flowers. Anna felt that they symbolized a mother’s pure love.


P.1: I love you, Mummy,

I really do!

You’re always happy

And funny too.

P.2: When it is sunny,

I think of you,

I love you, Mummy,

You love me too!

P.3: Mum, I love you

Yes, I do.

Happy Mother’s Day.

I love you.

P.4: Mommy, I love you

For all that you do.

I'll kiss you and hug you

'Cause you love me, too.

L.1: In the UK, Mother’s Day celebrations started by the name of Mothering Sunday, several years before the tradition found its roots in the UK. Mothering Sunday came to be celebrated following the practice in the UK of 17th century wherein children of poor families were send to work as apprentice and domestic servants with the rich. These children were allowed to visit their 'Mother Church' or the Cathedral of their home town annually in the middle of the fasting month of Lent. Children met their mothers after visiting the church and presented them with flowers and special 'Mothering Cakes'. The custom received a set back with the advent of Industrial Revolution when the lifestyles changes. American soldiers contributed in the revival of the tradition after the World War II.

L.2: The date of Mothering Sunday in the UK varies every year. It does not correspond to the Mother's Day festival in US which falls on the second Sunday in the month of May. Mothering Sunday in England is always celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter) in honor of Mary, the mother of Christ. The more commonly prepared dish of Mothering Sunday is Simnel Cake.

L.1: Simnel Cake is a special food item associated with Mothering Sunday. A Simnel cake is a rich fruit cake with a layer of almond paste on top and also in the middle. The cake is made with 11 balls of marzipan (a confection made of ground almonds or almond paste, egg whites and sugar, often molded into decorative shapes) icing on top representing the 11 disciples (Judas is not included). The cake was boiled in water, then baked. The Lenten fast dictated that the simnel cake be keep until Easter.

L.2: The word Simnel is said to have been derived from the Latin word "simila" which means a fine wheat flour mainly used for baking a cake. There is also an interesting legend associated with the use of the word Simnel. It says that once a man called Simon and his wife Nell had an argument over whether the Mothering Sunday cake should be baked or boiled. Ultimately, they did both. So the cake came be to named after both of them and was called, 'SIM-NELL'.

The song “A funny song for mother” (МР4 Приложение 3)

L.1: There are a lot of interesting situation between parents and children

L. 2: There are some of them.


Mother: Why is your T-shirt dirty? And your hands are dirty? When did you see me in a dirty T-shirt and with dirty hands?

Child: I didn’t see you when you were a little girl.


Mother: Nelly, did you wash your hands before dinner?

Nelly: Of course. You can see it if you look at the towel.


Mother: Never put off tomorrow what you can do today.

Pete: Then, Mother, let’s eat all the sweets today.


Mother: Nick, I don’t want you to go to Pete’s house. He is a bad boy.

Nick: Well, Mum. Then I’ll tell Pete to come to my house.


Mother: Children, I’m shocked. You said you wouldn’t eat your sweets before dinner.

Willie: We didn’t eat our own sweets. Tommy ate mine and I ate his.


Mother: Phil, come and help me, please. I am very busy.

Phil: Oh, Mum, I can’t do that. I’m busy, too.

Mother: And what are you doing, I wonder?

Phil: I’m watching TV.


Son: “Mom, teacher was asking me today, if I have any brothers or sisters who will be coming to school.”

Mom: “That’s nice of her to take such an interest in you. So what did she say when you told her that you’re the only child, my dear?”

Son: “She just said…“Thank goodness!”


It's Time to go to School

One early morning, a lady went in to wake up her son.

Mother: "Wake up, son. It's time to go to school!"

Son: "But why Mom? I don't want to go."

Mom: "Give me two reasons why you don't want to go."

Son: "Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too!"

Mom: "Oh, that's no reason to not to go to school. Come on now and get ready."

Son: "Give me two reasons why I should go to school."

Mom: "Well, for one, you're 52 years old. And for another, you're the Principal!"


A small boy is sent to bed by his mother...

[Five minutes later]

Son: "Mom..."

Mom: "What?"

Son: "I'm thirsty. Can you bring me a glass of water?"

Mom: "No. You had your chance. Lights out."

[Five minutes later]

L.2: We suggest you to listen to the short part of this poem.

M - O - T - H - E - R

"M" is for the million things she gave me,

"O" means only that she's growing old,

"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,

"H" is for her heart of purest gold;

"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,

"R" means right, and right she'll always be,

Put them all together, they spell

"MOTHER," а word that means the world to me.

L.1.: End we have founded another song for Mother’s Day which is very old too. It is “You are my Sunshine”. It was created by Jimmy Davis in 1940 “.

L.2: It is the original of this song.

Summaries “My Mom”

Wonderful Mother

P.1: God made a wonderful mother,

A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of the sunshine,

And He made her heart of pure gold;

In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,

In her cheeks fair roses you see;

God made a wonderful mother,

And He gave that dear mother to me.

And Grandma's too...

P.2: While we honor all our mothers

with words of love and praise.

While we tell about their goodness

and their kind and loving ways.

We should also think of Grandma,

she's a mother too, you see....

For she mothered my dear mother

as my mother mothers me.
