At first I'd like to pay your attention to the words on the board.

Teacher 1: It’s the words that characterize your dearest person in your life, it’s the words about your mothers. And today our lesson is devoted to Mother’s Day, the history of its celebration and traditions connected with this nice holiday. We hope you will enjoy our lesson and get to know a lot of interesting facts about Mother’s Day. But, pupils, do you know about the history and its celebration and how people celebrate it in different countries?
Pupil 1: (Zlatoslava) During the 17th century, those living on the British isles initiated a religious celebration of motherhood, called Mothering Sunday, which was held on the forth Sunday during the Lenten season.
In the United States, Mother's Day experienced a series of false starts before eventually transitioning into the "Hallmark" holiday that we celebrate today.
Mothers Day is a holiday where you give thanks to a mom, grandma, sister, aunt, friend, or anyone else who has acted as a mother to you during your life.
It is day where mothers get to relax and have a day that honors all of their hard work, love, and nourishment. Learning all about Mother's Day will help you make this day a special one for moms around the world.
Learning all about Mother's Day begins with tracing the history of this holiday. The first Mother's Day Celebration is said to be in honor of the Greek Goddess Rhea. Rhea was the mother of all Gods and Goddesses.
Pupil 2: (Yulia): What is Mothering Sunday?
Mothering Sunday in the UK is the equivalent of Mothers' Day in other countries.
What happens on Mothering Sunday in the UK?
Mothering Sunday is a time when children pay respect to their Mothers. Children often give their Mothers a gift and a card.
What is the history of Mothering Sunday ?
Young British maids and servants could visit their family only once a year. This was usually Mothering Sunday. The housekeeper or cook allowed the maids to bake a cake to take home for their mother.. Flowers were traditional, as the young girls and boys could gather them on their way home .
Teacher 2: And do you know, pupils, when we celebrate Mother’s Day? What season is it?
Pupils: Yes, in spring.
Teacher 2: You are quite right, pupils. Spring-time means a time of new birth and there are a lot of flowers in spring which are starting to bloom. And you know that in all times the best present for mother and for women were flowers. So, let’s see the video about flowers.
Now, let’s see some clip…
The melody is playing and the clip with different flowers is showing.
Teacher 1: Mother - she is always kind, smiling, tactful to you. She is the first example for you ideal. Mother taught you to love, forgive, take care and help people. She is your best friend. Mother always understands you, even, your way of thinking, failing and your pain. Her advice often saved you, or, at least, are your problems and everything that you have in your soil, that is kept deeply inside you- this you can tell only of your mother. You needn’t explain anything, she understands you in a word. And you know that in your heart there is a corner only for your mother.
Teacher 2: So, you’ve heard a wonderful words about mothers and have seen beautiful flowers. And I know that some of you have painted pictures with flowers for your mum, but not just the flowers but flowers which associated with your mother. So, now you will have a chance to present and show what you have done for your mummy.
Pupil 1 ( Sendrey K.) (holding a painted flower in her hands):
I used my thumbs and fingers too
To make this flower just for you.
It doesn’t smell, it doesn’t grow.
It’s from me to let you know;
Love you, Mum? Love you not?
Love you, Mum! Love you a lot!
Pupil 2: ( Bacharev Y.)
A piece of me I give to you,
I painted a flower
To say “I love you”.
The heart is you. The hand is me.
To show we are friends –
The best there can be.
I hope you will save it
And look back someday
At the flower we shared
On your special day.
Pupil 3: ( Hurela K. )
Describing the mother’s portrait.
Teacher 1: And now, tell us, please, what are your favourite flowers and what flowers prefer your mother.
On the screen:
I like.... but my mother likes....
Teacher 2: Mother’s hands... They can do everything: wash, clean, cook, look after their children, treat, teach and do many things. We can remember mother’s hands since early childhood. These hands take care of us day and night. Let’s make a list of some things that your mother does for you.
We need 2 teams. So, one team will be “Spring” and another – “Flowers”. You have a sheet of paper with sentences. So, think and continue them with the best variants:

“God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine,
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me. “
Pupil 8: ( Holovej O. )
Mothers teach us right from wrong,
Read with us, and sing us songs.

Mothers make us who we are.

To see it I am a happy girl.
And I have a joy that have no others,
This lovely woman is my Mother!

Teacher 2: Very nice, pupils. We got to know about the history of Mother’s Day celebration, we heard very interesting poems and proverbs.
Pupils, but we also prepared a song about mothers by famous band of Spice Girls. Let’s try to sing it together.
Spice Girls — Mama
She used to be my only enemy and never let me be free
Catching me in places that I knew I shouldn’t be
Every other day I crossed the line I didn't mean to be so bad
I never thought you would become the friend I never had
Back then I didn't know why
Why you were misunderstood
So now I see through your eyes
All that you did was love
Mama I love you Mama I care
Mama I love you Mama my friend You're my friend
I didn't want to hear it then but I'm not ashamed to say it now,
Every little thing you said and did was right for me,
I had a lot of time to think about, about the way I used to be,
Never had a sense of my responsibility.
Back then I didn't know why,
why you were misunderstood,
So now I see through your eyes,
all that you did was love,
Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend, My friend

Teacher 1: So, pupils, you were great and have worked well today. Thank you for your work.
Teacher 2: But, at the end let’s remember what the word “Mother” means for us.
Children appear on the stage with letters.
"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.

Glory and honour to our Mothers!
