  10. I love Presidents Day and I read Lincolns Hat. I bring in a big hat to show them how Lincoln put papers in his hat by having the kiddos write notes to add to the rim and in the top. Then they write a story of what important things would they put in their hat. It is quite funny what they think of.
    I really like your unit!

  11. Wow! You certainly have been very busy! Those activities look fabulous! My favorite activity to celebrate presidents day is to have all the children research a specific president and put on a living museum show for parents.

  12. Wonderful! The kids are enjoying your compound word center and they've done a nice job with your SH pack! You do such a quality job with your resources!

    Your President pack looks great! I usually read biographies of some presidents to the kids. They love doing the heads or tails coin toss with probability. They make a little book about the presidents. I need some new ideas! :o)

    Thanks, Latoya!

  19. I pick 5 different presidents and then we vote on which one we want to learn about and we will read a story and do some research to find out about the president. We also do a writing activity about what the students think is the president's job.
