Teutopolis, Fourth grade, Mrs. Mette



Katie Kingery

My mom’s name is Jenny Koester. She smiles all the time. My mom should be Mother of the Year.

My mom spends a lot of time at my basket ball games. She cheers me on in the game. My mom is the only person in my family except my dad to go to my basketball game.

My mom is awesome because she helps other people to get around. She likes everybody in the world. My mom is awesome.

My mom should be picked as number one Mother of the year. My mom is the best mom in the world.

My mom, Elizabeth Lewis, is the world’s greatest mom. She should be the

Mother of the Year.

The first reason is because my mom is very helpful. She helps my brother, sister, and me with homework, practicing sports, and picking out clothes (because sometimes our outfits don’t match). She also helps our great grandmas get to where they need to be. My mom would love to help you.

The second reason is she is hardworking. My mom has lots of jobs, but the most important job is taking care of our family. Taking care of our family can be dif?cult. We don’t like to have to do chores. Nobody could do any better than her.

My mom is the best. Make her the Mother of the Year.

Chloe Lewis

My mom, Deb Magee, should be Mother of the Year because she is the best mom you can ever have in the world.

My mom should be Mother of the Year because she takes me to Homewood Grill. She also cheers me on at baseball games. She doesn’t care what people think of her either.

My mom is the best mom because she cares about everyone in the world. She cares about family, and is always there for me when I have bad days. She treats everyone with respect.

My mom makes me happy every day. She should be the best Mother of the Year. My mom should win this award because she is the best mom a person can ever have.
