Daily(ish) Decodable: Father's Day

To my dad and all the other fathers out there, I'm going to run a special Daily Decodable today borrowing song lyrics from Paul Petersen's song, “My Dad.” Enjoy, 



Read It

Have your child read the passage below out loud:

My Dad


He isn't much in the eyes of the world.

He'll never make history. 

But he is the world to me.

My dad, now here is a man.

To me he is everything strong.

No he can't do wrong, my dad. 

When I was small, I felt ten feet tall,

when I walked by his side. 

And everyone one would say, "That's his son," and my heart would burst with pride. 

My dad, oh, I love him so. 


And I only hope that some day my own son will say, "My dad, now, here is a man!"
