Happy President's Week!
I absolutely love teaching my class about two of our history's most remarkable presidents.
These two men were great leaders who transformed the future of our country.
In honor of these two great men, I have a very engaging graphing activity we did in class!
This was one of our most engaging graphing activities this class has had yet!
After discussing & reading about Washington & Lincoln, we graphed which president we would want to be, what we would want to change in our country, and why.
We then went to town working away on answering the questions to the three kinds of graphing we did:
Here, one of the questions asked if we added 2 votes to Washington, and 4 to Lincoln, how would that change our data?
This little sweetie is counting it out, before she writes it!
To top it all off, we had fun in our morning groups, M-F learning more about our presidents.
A Week's Worth Of Work on Presidents!
Remember, A Week's Worth Of Work is everything you get here.
One simple click of print, and you have a whole week's packet ~in order, ~common core aligned, ~ready to go!!!
What's in it?
Language Conventions, a page of sentences to fix, grammar pieces, a check off cover page to monitor student progress & completion, plus a writing activity with a Caveman Plan to help jump start those stories!
It's the greatest feeling in the world, to teach the history of two of our greatest presidents to young children.
Their hearts and minds are so open to the stories that these men lived & left to us.
They couldn't get enough of their adventures!
Honest Abe, freeing the slaves, being so brave & honest, & wearing a tall black hat, because he loved it!
George's teeth that kept falling out, getting false teeth that stayed, chopping down his father's cherry tree, & not telling a lie about it, & leading our country to freedom.
The beauty of these stories & men, is that they are real.
Real men. Hard work. Brave. Honest.
Two honest men that served our country!
