Hats Off to Mothers!

I chose The Dearest Names p. 208 and Grandmother p. 200 in singing time.  We’ll be singing these songs on Mother’s Day in sacrament meeting.  
 

To teach The Dearest Names, I found a fun and easy idea called Hats Off to Mothers.  It will work with any song.  Then to teach Grandmother, we’ll use the picture I have of “Grandma!”

 
Print off the following mom and her hats using my access button at the bottom of this post.  I printed on card stock.  Cut out the hats and laminate if you want.
 
Here’s the poem it goes with:
 
Hats off to Mother
 
My mother’s job is sometimes hard, and I have heard her say,
“The hours are long, and if I could, I’d like to change the pay.
Her profession has variety, and I will tell you now
About the m any hats she wares-and why and when and how.
 
  1. My mommy’s a nurser who fixes and patches, all of my hurts and sores and my scatches.
  2. My mother’s a chef who fixes each dinner, fit for a king-a blue-ribbon winner!
  3. My mom’s a chauffer who drives pretty slow, but gets me to places where I need to go.
  4. My mom’s a detective, and no one is greater, at getting the truth from me sooner or later.
  5. My mommy’s a gardener and works really hard, planting and weeding and grooming our yard.
  6. My mother’s a maid-at least that’s what she said- ’cause she cleans up the house and makes every bed.
  7. My mother’s an angel-a queen in disguise-who teaches the gospel with tears in her eyes.

Today take these hats off, and please wear no other.  Let me do your work, to show I LOVE YOU, MOTHER!

My mother’s job is sometimes hard, and I have heard her say,
“The hours are long, and if I could, I’d like to change the pay.”
Her profession has variety, and I will tell you now
About the many hats she wears—and why and when and how.

  • My mommy’s a nurse who fixes and patches, All of my hurts and my sores and my scratches.
  • My mother’s a chef who fixes each dinner, Fit for a king—a blue-ribbon winner!
  • My mom’s a chauffeur who drives pretty slow, But gets me to places where I need to go.
  • My mom’s a detective, and no one is greater, At getting the truth from me sooner or later.
  • My mommy’s a gardener and works really hard, Planting and weeding and grooming our yard.
  • My mother’s a maid—at least that’s what she said— ‘Cause she cleans up the house and makes every bed.
  • My mother’s an angel—a queen in disguise—Who teaches the gospel with tears in her eyes.
  • Today take these hats off, and please wear no other. Let me do your work, to show I LOVE YOU, MOTHER!
On each of the back hats, I’m going to place a line in the song I’m teaching on the back:
 
#1: Nurse Hat:  I know a name, a glorious name,
#2: Dearer than any other.
#3: Listen, I’ll whisper the name to you:
#4: It is the name of mother.
#5: Mother, so tender and kind and true,
#6: I love you, I love you.
#7: Mother, so tender and kind and true, I love you.
 
So as each hat is placed on the “mom” we’ll read the corresponding poem and then sing the line written on the back.
 
To teach Grandmother, I’m just going to play Hot Potato with the cutout of a grandma.
 
We’ll sing the song and pass her around. The piano will randomly stop and whoever is holding Grandma will get to tell the Primary something about their Grandma (what they like to do with her, why they love her, what they remember about her, etc.).  I’ll have the words posted as we sing.
