Products for May 2022

It’s Mayand here is a list filled with inspiration for May themes, events and holidays. Use these ideas to create your lesson plans and activities. Things will soon begin to slow down but May is filled with holidays and important days such as Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day. 
On the fifth of May, Cinco de Mayo, Mexicans remember the Battle of Pueblo. In 1862, the Mexican Army won a battle over the French in Puebla. To commemorate this day there are parties and festivals with special food and decorations. This is a great opportunity to teach your kids about Mexican culture. 

The second Sunday is a day to honor mothers and other mother figures - grandmothers, aunties, and stepmothers. This tradition started in 1907 in America, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial service for her mother. Kids can learn more about the history behind the celebrations and make some crafts to celebrate important women in their lives. 

On the last Monday of May, we honor men and women who died while serving the United States Armed Forces. Many Americans visit cemeteries or memorials and hold family gatherings. Check out my Fact Booklet about Memorial Day for ideas about how to teach kids about this day. The resource comes with craftivities that will help kids to make a meaningful connection and develop a deeper understanding of the commemorations. 

There is a wide selection of animals that can be studied during the traditional zoo theme.  

Products may be found in my store!
