President's Day Freebie

We were all so wrapped up on Valentines that we may have overlooked that President's Day was right around the corner.  Here's some resources to make it a little easier for you!


A fun video that is age appropriate!

A fun catchy song from Harry Kindergarten.  I plan on using this closer to the holiday as my weekly poem for management.  (An attention grabber to get them focused and ready.)  



I am really into picture prompts for writing as well.  So I loaded my Picture Prompt Pinterest board up with presidential photos.  Just pull the photo up, load the kids with vocabulary seen or simple sentences and send them off on their way!  The stories you get will be loaded with great creative sentences!

Then this is what we did in kindergarten two weeks ago to study the presidents!  Five presidents: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Barack Obama.  Each president has an information page to read and take notes, several graphic organizers, several writing pages, and a craft!  I like to preassemble the book, and use the title pages to glue on the craft so the kids have a comprehensive books of the presidents!





Now for a freebie!  This is a fun writing activity I plan on using on Tuesday.  The students will draw themselves in as president and write about what they would do if they were the president!  I think the kids are going to get a kick out of putting themselves up in the ranks with these influential presidents!

I placed this as the free preview for the President Craftivity Book and in Simply Kinder Random Freebies for you!  

Have a great long weekend everyone!
