In mid-May, The International Preschools celebrated the traditional Mother’s Day holiday. While our 76th Street location honored mothers in a few different ways, the 86th Street location chose to commemorate “Parents Day” with the children and their families.
At 76th Street, our Green 2, Pre-K 1, and Pre-K 2 classes held a “Mother’s Read-Aloud” during the month of May. Every winter, IPS holds its annual “Fathers and Special Friends Read-Aloud” in conjunction with its school-wide author and book studies. Here, male readers of any relations (fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, neighbors) are invited into the classrooms to either read a book from the author that the class is studying, or a chapter from the chapter book that the class is reading. To allow for the mothers to have a special turn, these three classes invited moms to sign up for a special read-aloud time. Other classes touched upon Mother’s Day with crafts, special mom-and-me projects via Zoom, and reading books about moms and babies. It was a lot of fun!
At 86th Street, classes celebrated “Parents Day” by inviting moms and dads to join in on Zoom and work on projects, listen to stories, and participate in their child(ren)’s classes for the day. Families really enjoyed taking part in this special event!
We at IPS hope that you had a very special Mother’s (or Parents) Day this year!
