Since I received such positive feedback on my Mother’s Day cards, I created some for dads as well (couldn’t let them feel left out!). Students love adding their own creative touches to the cards and their pictures on the cards add even more of a personal touch (especially if the students take and send their own “selfies” or pictures to me to place on the cards).
With many of us now having both in class and remote learning students, I created printable cards that students can personalize and color AND digital cards that distance learning students can edit using Google Classroom, Seesaw, or any platform that supports JPEG files.
As you may know, I like giving my students lots of choice so there are 7 different designs from which to choose. If you would like to use them with your students they are available here.
Use PowerPoint to Insert Student Photos
I am a huge fan of PowerPoint as an editing tool. Their crop to shape feature makes it so easy to add student photos to the cards in just the right size and shape.
Photos you have on file can be used or students can send a recent photo via Google Classroom, Seesaw, or email.
Once I get students’ photos inserted, I save the cards as JPEG files because I can print them out several on a page for in class students AND I can easily add them as background images in Google Slides or add them to Seesaw for remote learning students to edit.
Students Can Color the Printable Black & White Cards
Students color and personalize the printable black & white cards.
Students Can Edit The Digital Cards in Google Slides or Seesaw
The digital cards can be sent to distance learning students so they can add all of their creative and cute edits. Students can use Google Slides in Google Classroom to write messages to their dads and “sign” their names. They can also insert shapes such as hearts, smiley faces, suns, stars, etc. or call outs to make it look like they are saying something special to their dads.
Students can also add special edits in Seesaw. They can use the drawing tools to sign their names and draw pictures, use the text tool for messages, and my favorite part is they can use the record option to record a special message for their dads that their dads can download and keep! How special!
