Holidays: Father’s Day
Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in many countries, including the US where it originated. In today’s mini-podcast, English learners discover the history behind this day. They learn about Sonara Smart Dodd, the “Mother of Father’s Day”, and discuss how the roles of fathers have changed over the years. This podcast is an audio preview of our ready-made Holiday lesson plan. The Father’s Day lesson plan comes with vocabulary review, a reading, comprehension questions, and pair work. Students are also introduced to some fun expressions, such as “daddy daycare” and “daddy’s girl”. Preview all of ESL-Library’s Holiday lessons here. If you have any suggestions for topics, please leave a comment.
Please introduce your students to our FREE podcasts. These can act as a preview to our Mini-Biography, Discussion Starter, Grammar Story, Holiday, Health, or Famous People/Place/Thing lessons. They can also serve as extra listening homework to help your learners develop an understanding of the rhythm of English. Some teachers use our weekly podcast (posted every Wednesday) as a warm up for an online tutoring session.
Introduce your students to iTunes today! This is our 118th episode.
