1-2-3 Come Do Some Superhero Activities With Me
Since superheroes are super popular with my students, I decided to design this fun-filled packet entitled: “Superheroes Wear Masks & So Do We!”
Why wear a mask? Because we are germ fighters! We mask up, social distance & wash our hands.
Hopefully, being a germ-fighting superhero will lesson the anxiety of this crazy time in history.
I've included a pair of superhero posters you can use to introduce your lesson, then later include on your bulletin board.
There are all sorts of “What is your ____ name?” activities on the Internet, such as “What Is Your Pirate Name?”; so I thought it would be fun to create my own Superhero one.
Since my kiddos are working on identifying letters, plus recognizing & writing their names, this is especially worthwhile, and a lot of fun for them.
Unlike the ones on the web, I have more than one option for each letter.
I tried to be alliterative as well, so with just a few exceptions, I've used words that begin with those letters as well.
The “What’s Your Superhero Name?” activity has black & white name cards for students to color, then write their name on. I've also included a pair in color, so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share.
These name cards come lined & unlined with 3 boy & 3 girl superhero options for children to choose from.
Completed projects look cute on a door. Use the "What's Your Superhero Name?" poster for the center of your display.
How does it work?
Using poster #1, students find their initial for their name, then pick one of the adjectives that they like.
Using poster #2 they find their name initial, and choose one of the nouns.
For example, ella reeland chose Blazing Falcon, and saac aylor chose Invisible Tornado for their superhero names.
As you can see in the photograph, I've included a variety of onomatopoetic "call outs", which I sprinkled around my posters. This became part of my wall display.
Other things included in the packet:
*** 4 girl & 4 boy “Superheroes wear masks and so do I” (trace & color) worksheets,
*** A girl & boy “I’m a germ fighter” worksheet, which comes in a 2-on-a-page size.
For added pizzazz, take a photo of each student, cut them into circles, and have them glue them to the circle on their pattern. On my masked-samples, I list the germ fighting rules.
As you can see by my other samples, you can also use these for students to write their superhero names on.
There's also a full-page option, with & without lines, plus a traceable option too.
*** The photographs also show the “starburst” name tags, which come in large & small sizes, as well as black & white, plus colorful options.
All of the activites are easy-peasy "print & go", and suitable for distance learning.
I recently updated all of my packets, so now all of my products have that clickable option!
These activities also make a cute bulletin board, door or hallway display.
Be sure and use the 9, easy-cut, onomatopoeia “call out” bubbles, such as Crash, Boom, Bam to add some extra pop & pizzazz to your display.
There's also a "call out" worksheet students can trace & color, along with a matching poster.
If appropriate, take that teachable moment to teach/review adjectives & nouns. Click the LINK to grab a copy.

1-2-3 Come Make Some Father's Day "Craftivities" With Me
My son-in-law is a huge superhero fan. Seems he's not alone, as Marvel comics is raking in millions of dollars cashing in on the craze. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to design some superhero-themed Father's Day activities that I hope your kiddos will enjoy making for their dads.
The packet includes a Father's Day Batman card, as well as a Superman writing prompt card.
Students color the covers and then hinge them to the second page.
While doing research about superheroes, I came across a sweet simile poster. The link went no where and there was no author, so I decided to revamp it by adding my own superhero similes and incorporating specific superhero fonts that students could color appropriately.
I think it turned out pretty cute, providing a fun way to explain the concept of similes to your students.
My husband didn't quite get "classy as Batman" until I explained to him that Bruce Wayne was a millionaire and supposedly sophisticated. Even after I Googled characteristics of superheroes, it was still difficult to pinpoint some adjectives.
My daughter thought that Captain America was more protective than The Green Lantern, but I chose that term for him, because in researching each character, it seemed that The Green Lantern went hand-in-hand with the Justice League, Guardians of the Universe, and the Intergalactic Police, all of which I presumed were very protective. At any rate, I hope your kiddos find it amusing.
The Craft Caravan had a cute Super Dad coloring page, which inspired me to create several of my own. I designed a superhero head that children can draw in details to look like their dad and then complete the writing prompts on the right.
For another coloring page option, I drew the famous "ripped open shirt" of Superman, only the logo here is "Super Dad."
As with the above portrait, students fill in the facial features of their fathers. You can staple the simile page to this, or have students write why their dad is super on the back of their picture.
For a simple writing prompt activity, students choose one of two bookmarks to color and then write why they feel their dad is a superhero.
There are also two bookmarks that have an acrostic father poem on them; they come in black line, as well as full color.

I made my samples with my little grandson. He's only 19 months old, but was happy to add his scribbles, and I think his papa will appreciate both of our efforts.
While surfing, I found a wonderful superhero dad poem and decided to include it in Kaiden's paper love cards for his daddy. If you like it too, click on the link to grab this FREEBIE over at Creat-Craft-Love.
