FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Poetry Lesson, Father’s Day Card Materials for Older Students/Teens”

by Laura Randazzo

8th – 12th Grade

Remember the Father’s Day cards we made back in elementary school? Let’s revisit that tradition for our middle- and high-school students with these print-and-go materials that’ll make a bunch of dads (and father figures) feel appreciated on their special day.

Included:
• A student handout featuring eight slices of poetry about fathers/masculine power.
• Six coloring pages that fold in half to become cards (Print on white paper, colored paper, or cardstock – grab whatever’s available in the copier room and go!)

Suggested lesson procedure:
1. Begin by handing out the page that includes eight bits of poetry, giving students a few minutes to read them all.
2. Have students choose the poem that reminds them most of their father/closest paternal figure.
3. Give students a choice of card designs.
4. Inside the card, have them write a loving note to the recipient and include the lines of poetry in their best handwriting.
5. With any remaining time in class, have students color the front of the card with colored pencils or sharp-tipped markers. The coloring portion can be completed in class if time allows or sent home for students to complete on their own time. 

Tip: When printing the cards, choose “Print Full Size” on your printer settings. If you choose “Scale to Fit” (the default on many printers), your cards may have unevenly spaced borders.

We Teach So Hard…Episode 33… Interdisciplinary Projects Can Save Your Sanity

We’re galloping toward the year’s end. There’s standardized testing to get through…HOURS of it, in fact. Field trips, assemblies, learning celebrations, and don’t forget about your evaluation, report cards, common assessments, and closing up your classroom. When we think about our school life in the months of April, May and June, it’s hard not to hyperventilate. BECAUSE WE STILL HAVE TO TEACH, and let’s face it-our students are checked out! Interdisciplinary projects can save your sanity. They really can! They’ll keep the learning going, engage your kids, and help you get in all those standards you still have to teach. TURN UP YOUR VOLUME and get ready to rock your end of the year teaching!
