How wonderful is Mom? Help your second grade mathematician "measure" the ways with this creative gift of appreciation, great for Mother's Day, or any day. Taking the structure of a recipe, ask your child to come up with a set of "ingredients" that make Mom special, and then put it into a whimsical card. Whether it’s 3 cups of love or a tablespoon of laughter, this fun activity will bring a smile to any mom’s face ... and it will also provide valuable practice with measurement terms that are a classic part of second grade mathematics.
