I love February because there are so many fun topics to teach this month. One of my favorite topics is teaching about President's Day. We have been busy this week learning all about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
After reading some books about Washington, we created this anchor chart together.
The students made these George Washington's and wrote some facts.
These are some of our favorite George Washington books.
Next, we began learning about Abraham Lincoln. We created this anchor chart together.
The students filled out their own sheet. Click on the picture to download.
The students created these hats to write about Abraham Lincoln.
Last year, we made log cabins out of pretzels. We just haven't had time to do this yet. Maybe next week.
These are some of our favorite Abraham Lincoln books.
I also created this President Fact Sort that my students will complete next week. Students will trace Washington and Lincoln's profile onto red and blue paper. They can glue them onto a large white sheet of paper. Next, the students will cut out the facts and glue them onto the correct president.

This packet includes 9 original poems/songs, illustrate the poem pages, and word cards or each poem. You can check it out by clicking below. Have a GREAT weekend!!
