Happy Presidents Day!

Wow, I just survived Day 100 and Valentine's Day on the same day. (We had a blast, but boy, am I run down!)

Happy Presidents Day! Here are several resources and ideas for primary classrooms to learn about our presidents.

Monday is Presidents Day! I plan on spending most of next week celebrating our presidents as well as our country! 

If you've been following my blog, you know I have a strong sense of patriotism, and feel children should take pride in their country. I also LOVE teaching social studies and mapping skills.

Here's a fun resource that I made that includes 3 fact mini-books. One is on George Washington, another is on Abraham Lincoln. Plus, it's been updated to include President Joe Biden! It also has a mapping activity, finding places related to these presidents. Click the image for the resource.

Here's another resource to review the difference between most of the patriotic holidays we have throughout the year: Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Constitution Day, and Veterans Day.  I don't know about you, but my little second-graders struggle to remember which one is which!

Of course, you'll be needing brain breaks! Here's one more fun resource!

  1. What wonderful freebies - thanks for sharing!

    So You Want to be President is one of my favorite books and definitely a must-read for next week!

    Sorry you don't have Monday off - but at least the kiddos will return well-rested and ready-to-go on Tuesday (at least in theory! hah )

    Joy in the Journey
