Downloadable EFL Lesson: Mother’s Day
Nearly every culture has a holiday dedicated specifically to moms, but how often do we stop and really think about all that they do? This downloadable EFL lesson on Mother’s Day first gives your learners a fun puzzle as they watch a clever commercial made about the importance of mothers and all that they do for us and then allows your students to appreciate their caregiver for themselves. At the end of the lesson, students get to show a little appreciate by writing a Thank You card to their caregiver. Imagine how proud Mom will be when she gets a Thank You card written in English!
Type: Listening, Writing
Lesson Aims: Learners will develop skills for listening for main idea and specific info, as well as fluency in writing.
Approximate Timing: 45-60 minutes
Notes to the Teacher: This lesson focuses appreciating the job of a mother with an engaging listening clip. If you want to keep the puzzle of “What is the toughest job in the world?” going for a while, you might want to plan this lesson for the week before Mother’s Day.
