Super Dad Comics! So much fun!

My class and I had the best time making these little Superhero themed comic strips for Father's Day!  Before we began, we had a little discussion about Superhero comic books, what they look like and what kinds of words they use.  We talked about the original slogan for Superman...which goes something like, "Faster than a speeding bullet... more powerful than a locomotive... able to leap tall buildings in a single bound... it's a bird, it's a plane, no... it's SUPERMAN!"

Then, we got to work on some brainstorming for our own "Superdad" comic strips for Father's Day.  The students helped me think of some things that are FAST, and then we came up with sound word to go with it (to go inside the speech burst/bubble). (We added a few funny ones with a Father's Day theme... such as "a lawnmower" haha!)  Then, we got to work on making a list of things that are strong or powerful like our dads.  I cracked up when one of my students called out "a hammer!"  How perfect for Father's Day 

And here are a few of the finished products! 

 I love the facial expressions my student drew in this one!  Such a great imagination!
