Light Up Mother’s Day Cards

  • “You light up my life!”
  • “You light up my heart!”
  • “You are the light of my life.”
  • “You make my day shine!”
  • “You make me shine!”
  • “You light my way.”
  • “You shine like a star.”
  • “You are my shining star.”

These are just a few of the sayings second graders used on their light up Mother’s Day cards!

We used paper circuits from Chibitronics to create the circuits behind a shape in the inside of their cards.

 

Then they poked holes in the shape to help light shine through and came up with catchy sayings for Mother’s Day.  I was so impressed with their creativity and they were so proud of their cards. Take a look at some of them below:

 

See more of the cards on the Glenvar Digital Archive.

Kindergarten Mother’s Day Stories

Students in Mrs. Clapper’s Kindergarten Class created Digital Stories with the Story Kit app about their moms for Mother’s Day! They have pictures, text, and sound. Students did all the work themselves, starting with the “selfie” they took using the camera app.  Click on their selfies below to interact a few examples below.  If you see a sound button, turn up your volume and click it to hear their voices!

During the class’ Mother’s Day Tea, moms will receive a handmade card with a QR code on it that links to their child’s story!  How fun!
