Sample Lesson
Thank Your Mom!
Linda M. Chung

  Your mother does many things for you daily. You can thank her on Mother’s Day. You can give her a gift. Flowers are the usual gift. But your gift can be different. Make it special. Instead of flowers, give her seeds. Then she can grow her own flowers. She can plant them in a garden or in a pot. She can enjoy them for a long time.
