“I LOVE Mommy Week” Blog Recap!

Hello all,

“I Love My Mommy Week” was full of hard work and loaded with lots of love! The students spent the entire week crafting the most incredible gifts to present to the amazing Park Prep Academy Mommies at the 2018 Mother’s Day Celebration! Read on below to learn about what the students were up to this week while preparing for the big day!

To help them get into the right mindset on Monday, the students created a list of the many reasons why Mommies are as special as they are. The list included great answers such as: Mommies are beautiful and give great hugs! Mommies make boo-boos go away! Mommies read funny stories at bedtime! After discussing all of the special things about Mommies, the students learned that they would be making special gifts to help say “Thank you and I love you” to the PPA Mommies! Seeing that the PPA Mommies are so special, one gift would not be enough but three gifts seemed just right! Continue on below to learn about these three amazing gifts that the students spent the week working on!

The first gift the students made was a special photo jewelry box for Mommy. The students all agreed that the jewelry boxes looked a bit plain; it was decided pretty quickly that they should be decorated! In order to do so, the students began by painting the box the color(s) of their choosing.  A little glitter and some gems were added for some extra pizzazz.  To finish it off, the students posed for a photograph holding a sign with a sweet message.  Here is how the completed photo jewelry box gift turned out.

 

 

Now, what good is a jewelry box without any jewelry to put inside?  Once the boxes were complete, the students began part two of their Mother’s Day gifts – a long beaded necklace!  The students strung assorted colored wooden beads on a long string which (with a little teacher help) was tied.  A paper tag was added to help keep track of which child had created which necklace!  They sure look beautiful!

 

 

Later in the week, the students began working on the final Mommy gift – a page in the “Class ‘I Love Mommy Because…’ Book”.  One by one the students were asked why they loved their Mommy.  Whether their responses were funny or sweet, one thing is for sure – the PPA Mommies are certainly loved a lot!

 

 

The students took a break from working on Mommy gifts on Wednesday morning as they welcomed a Mommy and Daddy fitness duo into the classroom!  The Mommy and Daddy fitness featured below own a fitness studio in NYC, Crossfit Spot, that helps people exercise and keep their bodies healthy!  This duo led the students in an AMAZING and FUN workout which included squats, ladder work, jump squats, jumping jacks, sprint races, balance walks and more!  Here a few videos from their visit!  A special THANK YOU to this PPA Mommy and Daddy Fitness duo for teaching us just how fun (and important) exercise can be!  Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post for more photographs from the visit!

 

 

 

 

Friday morning was spent wrapping the presents and also rehearsing a special performance that the students would perform later that day at the 2018 PPA Mother’s Day Celebration!  Finally, Friday afternoon had arrived and it was time for the party!  Once the room had filled up with PPA students and Mommies, the celebration began!  What a special day it was!  Below please find some of the photographic highlights from the 2018 PPA Mother’s Day Celebration.  Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this entry to view the entire photo gallery!

 

 

Thank you to all of the INCREDIBLE Mommies of Park Prep Academy.  We hope you had a wonderful time!  Happy Mother’s Day!
