Here’s what parents are saying about Mother’s Day:
“Mother’s Day is one of those holidays I have always thought was invented by the companies selling cards and candy. After going through this study from . . . Amanda Bennett, I have learned I was wrong. Mother’s Day may have only been an official holiday in these United States for 96 years, but a day for celebrating mothers has been around in one form or another since the times of the early Greeks . . . What makes this study even more special? It will be a unique card for Mother’s Day . . . There are options for younger and older children with differing amounts of writing required. Older children could do this on their own, especially when they are motivated by wanting to surprise their mama . . . What was new for us is the special Download N Go™ link for videos. . . . I was thrilled to see this different environment for my children to enjoying watching these clips in. Especially in this particular unit where I want to be as hands off as possible, this feature makes it even easier to ‘download and go’.”

“In this study, I love the fact that we get a glimpse of the lives of some famous Biblical moms like Moses’ mom and the Pharaoh’s daughter . . . How great to learn about women and moms that we should be aspiring to as moms who are training their children up in the Lord. The lapbooking activity is a lot of fun and will become a cherished keepsake for moms as their children work on it throughout the study. Children express their love for their mom through creative expression and other activities interspersed throughout. Also included are some notebooking pages, which will add to the overall study. Again, another well-done unit study to make a fun week during the school year . . . I cannot stress enough how much fun this study will prove to be, and at a low price, it is affordable and interchangeable enough to be used for a wide set of children’s ages and abilities.”

“Just wanted to let you know that we really like and appreciate your unit studies! My children have so enjoyed them and when my husband found out there was one for Mother’s Day he took it upon himself to do it with the children each night last week! They loved that and learned a lot! They made me a wonderful big card and then breakfast yesterday morning too! They were so excited! Thank you again Amanda Bennett for all you help inspire us to do with our children!”

“If you haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy the few months’ worth of weekly unit studies, this week would be a great one to start . . . After the week’s completed, you will have a better understanding of this wonderful holiday to celebrate mothers all over the world . . . We’ve really enjoyed working through our Download N Go™ unit studies. I love the ease of putting it together, and the lesson planning is all done for you. . . . you will get an entire week of studies that include reading, writing, videos, library books, lapbooking, notebooking, and a whole lot of fun. Let’s learn more about why we celebrate Mother’s Day and then kick back and enjoy this wonderful gift that God has given us—our mothers.“
