A nice, authentic video based listening/watching lesson for Mother's Day.

Simple lesson.

1. Write on the board "Thank you mom for ........" and elicit responses from students. 

2. Watch the video "Thank You Mom" and listen to what these people in New York thank their Moms for.

3. Watch again with the worksheet. Watch as many times as needed. Students fill in and order (cut into strips or just have them number each line).

4. Students write 3 things they thank their mother for - share with the class and read some. 

Time permitting and depending on the age of the class, you might have them fold an A4 and write a card to their mother with inside - Thank You Mom For .......
