Read to the children
the following story:
One mother has seven daughters. Once mother went to visit her relatives who live quite far. So she came back only in a week. When mother entered her hut, all her daughters one after another started to express how they missed their mother.
- I missed you as the poppyhead misses a solar meadow, - said the first daughter.
- I waited for you as the dry earth waits for a drop of water, - spoke the second.
- I cried for you as a tiny bird cries for his mummy, - expressed the third.
- For me it was so difficult without you, as for a bee without a flower, - said the fourth.
- I was dreaming about you as the drop of a dew dreams of a rose, - exlaimed the fifth.
- I looked out for you as a nightingale looks out for the cherry garden, - sighed the sixth.
And the seventh daughter said nothing. She silently removed shoes from the mother and brought some water in the basin - to wash her legs.
Questions and tasks to the story:
- What qualities possesses the seventh daughter? In which way she differed from her sisters?
- What do you think, what is more difficult: to speak beautifully or to act beautifully?
Try to think carefully then tell, what each daughter could make for her mum.
- What you for do for mum when she gets tired?
On the board draw the camomile, and in it's centre write the word "children". Ask children to name how they help their mothers. The teacher writes down on petals of this camomile all mentioned by children. So it becomes (turns out into) “The flower of help for mother.”
Written work and drawings:
Ask children to describe a portrait of their mothers on the following:
- What flower you mum looks like?
- What she likes to do?
- With what she makes you happy and which of her actions or words can make you sad?
- What did she teach you already, teaches now or intends to teach?
- What she gives you as a gift on birthdays or for any other special occasions?
After this ask children to draw a portrait of mum and decorate it. Or to draw mum's eyes full of kindness and love.
Draw a flower of help for mother.
