Father's Day Writing Activity

We often have children go home with something special for Mother's Day, but why not Father's Day?  This year why not show dads that we value their participation in a child's life.  If your school year is winding down, why not do this writing activity and have the child "save it" to give to their father or father figure in June. 
Since many children do not have their biological parents in their lives due to many different reasons, they often hesitate in actively participating in any holiday honoring parents.  For this reason, this Father's Day writing activity includes three different themes.  One is for Dad, one is for Grandpa, and one is for Someone Special to Me.
There are different pages and clip art for My Earliest Memory pages, my Favorite Memory, and three different acrostic poem outlines.

This 29-page pdf will allow students to "design" the packet that best fits their relationship with the "father figure" in their lives.

Included in the download:
  8 Cover pages
  3 Acrostic poem outlines (Daddy, Grandpa, Special)
15 Different Earliest Memory Pages
  3 My Favorite Memory Pages

This is a great writing activity or could be used in a writing center.

Thanks for looking,

What a great idea, there are so many kids with no fathers in the home. We are going to have a donuts for dads this year for the first time. does you school do anything like this?

My school usually doesn't do anything for mothers or dads to be perfectly honest. At mother's day, I thought we should do something for Father's Day as well. Donuts for Dads sounds like a fun event. Hope it goes well.
