Frequently here at Brennan School we seem to put more of an emphasis on Mother's Day than Father's Day. This year that was not the case, for we created several different projects to celebrate the occasion...
If it Weren't For You / I Like, But I don't Like...In ELA class our grades 1 - 7 students wrote poems for their dad's using models from "For The Love of Language. This book is a no-fail treasury of poetry writing scaffolds suitable for all ages.
We had our Ks pose with cardboard letters to spell DAD. We hoped to print the photos in sepia, but weren't able to get a clear resolution, so we opted for colour. Next, we mod-podged them to a stained (thanks Jared) piece of wood.
(I can't quite figure our how to rotate this photo)
I had to try out the project, so I did one for my brother, so the pics you see are my niece and nephews.
Key Rings for DadOn Pinterest I found something different for a card - key holders that explain why our students love their dads. http://www.thetaylor-house.com/fathers-day-craft-keychain/
We collected paint samples from some of the local hardware stores. For rings I found small wire shower curtain rings at Dollarama and tada... here's our project.
