Father’s Day resources on TeacherSherpa.com are a great way to celebrate the hard work and dedication that our students’ fathers exhibit every day. And this needs to be done, because, for most families, fathers are the bread winners and don’t get to spend as much time with their kids as they’d like.
For most of us, when we were growing up, we wished we had more time with our dads. In fact, I bet most of us would say that we’re closer to our moms than our dads. How many of your students do you think would say that, too?
So, it’s great that we set aside a day every year to remember how awesome our dads are and how much they provide for us by sacrificing their time and energy. Because, I’m sure, most of them would rather be home spending time with their kids than stuck at the office.
Below are some creative resources to help you celebrate Father’s Day in your class. They’re completely FREE and ready to download from TeacherSherpa.com’s Inspiration Wall.
Get ready to be inspired!
