I have said it a couple times before, but man is this month FULL of things to be teaching our little ones. I know many have had ALOT of snow days which makes it even harder to get everything in that they need to.
Next week is President’s Day and I am sure many of you are working on teaching your little ones all about what President’s Day is. I felt it fitting to share some of my favorite President’s Day resources so you can have some ideas for this week.
First, I will direct you to my Pinterest board HERE. There are many different units/crafts etc ideas you can use. I will highlight a few of my favorites below. You can click on each of the pictures to take you directly to the pin URL.
This log cabin made out of pretzels would be such a neat project to accomplish when discussing Abraham Lincoln and the kids would have a blast with it (what kid doesn’t like making things using food).
How stinking adorable and easy are these cute little cookies from Party Pinching.
This application is such an awesome addition to your President’s Day activities. Stephanie’s activities are amazing. You will definitely want to check it out.
I LOVE all of Teri’s crafts and this Lincoln is no different :)
And having kids compare themselves to a life-sized Lincoln is such a fun and interactive activity that will help students understand just how tall Lincoln was. (This one didn’t have a URL linked to it so it is unclickable.)
Other resources I like to use come from my updated George & Abe President’s Day Pack. This pack is structured like all my other themed units and also includes a bonus patriotic heart craft.
Various Writing Prompts and Graphic Organizers for various President’s Day related ideas. Materials are also included in order to make class anchor charts and graphic organizers.
Labeling activities for both Washington and Lincoln with a colored poster also included.
Class graphing activity to see who the students’ favorite president is. This also comes with class chart parts.
Venn Diagram and All About pages for Washington and Lincoln.
And a classroom little reader all about President’s Day and Washington and Lincoln.
The pack also consists of directions and materials to make this Patriotic Heart craft (this craft takes some time and needs alot of attention to detail so make sure your students are able to follow directions well.)
You can find the materials in this pack by clicking on any of the pictures above.
My last resources I want to share for President’s Day are some President’s Day books. I adore books and love using them during themed teaching times :)
I hope you were able to find some ideas that you can use to help teach your student’s about President’s Day. Have a good week friends and stay warm wherever you may be reading from. :)
