The Best Part of My Dad: Father’s Day Writing Project

With Fathers Day around the corner, it’s time to make sure you’ve got a Father’s Day classroom gift ready to go. Here is a meaningful writing gift for dads based on a great read aloud.

Even if you’re not in school during June, this gift for a male role model is a keeper.

If a student doesn’t have a dad you could easily tweak this writing activity for a grandpa or uncle.

Happy Father’s Day Writing Activity

Read The Best Part of Me by Wendy Ewald with your class. Discuss the best parts of themselves and begin to think about what the best part of their dad is. Students should describe why that best part is special and meaningful to them.

You can even use included student samples to help students gather ideas. Students create a final product with a colored border and sign it for their dads.

This is definitely a keep sake to laminate for Father’s Day!
