FOR KIDS: MOTHER'S DAY
On May 14th, we celebrate moms! Mother’s Day is a day to give thanks for everything moms do for us. Make mom a picture frame for your favorite photo of your family, or make family face magnets for a funny gift! Read these books about Mother’s Day or learn about Mother’s Day traditions from around the world.


FOR PARENTS: WRITE YOUR OWN STORY
Today is Make a Book Day! Many of us love to read stories, but have you ever thought of making your own? Make a book about friends, feelings, using your manners, or create a memory bookto share with family. PBS Kids also has a collection of story games if you prefer to make a digital story!


FOR EDUCATORS: MAKING THE MOST OF READING
Explicit reading and phonics instruction is extremely important to student success. But sometimes switching up a reading lesson can help increase student engagement! Partnering students as “book buddies” can be a fun way to increase student independence and collaboration. Try using a reading chart for students to track their progress. These Reading Rainbow lessons have paired activities for cross-curricular opportunities in social studies, math, and science.
