DAD Card Template

DD-card-1-884x1024As one of my favorite card projects, I’ve posted this before but never with a template that I thought some busy teachers might appreciate.

• View and download D-A-D PDF template

PREP: Cut large white construction paper (12″ x 18″) in half to make panels of 6″ x 18″. Fold the panels into thirds to make a card that measures 6″ x 6″. Arrange folds so that the card makes a “Z”. Cut lots of posterboard “D” and “A” block letters for the students to trace. Plan B: Print out the PDF file on cardstock paper and have students color and cut and tape to look like the sample art.

1. The students center the letter templates in each panel, trace with a pencil, and then trace with a black marker.

2. The students color in a different pattern inside each letter, and then different colors for the background.
