Many teachers face a dilemma when it comes to Father’s Day. The reason for the dilemma is twofold, first, many schools are already on summer vacation by the time Father’s Day arrives and second, some children don’t have fathers in their lives. While I can’t control when school gets out, I can provide ideas for Father’s Day that are appropriate not only for fathers, but any male role model.
This Father’s Day idea using Wordle is super easy, quick to make, and will be loved by any man lucky enough to receive it! If you’re not familiar with Wordle it is a free website that creates personalized word clouds using text you provide.
To create a personalized Father’s Day Wordle, first you will need to select the type of picture frame you will use. You might consider using a store bought picture frame, a craft foam frame decorated by the children, or you can have children create their own frames using popsicle sticks. Next, ask your children to describe their Dad or male role model. Type your list of descriptive words into Wordle and adjust your fonts, colors, and layout to get your desired look. When you are finished just print to create your masterpiece and place the finished product in the picture frame.
