Presidents' Day Teaching Ideas and Craft

Presidents' Day is celebrated in the United States on the 3rd Monday in February. This year we will celebrate on February 20th.  Many schools pay particular attention to George Washington's birthday which is February 22. Abraham Lincoln's birthday, which is also in mid-February, is also often celebrated this month.


I found this great video that gives the names and pictures of all the presidents from George Washington to Donald Trump. I think the kids will enjoy it.  I want to thank the creator of the video, Mr.Harms, for sharing it with all of us. Click the link below to view the video.

https://youtu.be/Cj-q2VNa89c

Of course reading with the kids about the different presidents including Washington and Lincoln is always a great idea for Presidents' Day. Here is a sampling of books you might find at your library.



If you would like to make a craft with the kids, here is a fun windsock to make to make using patriotic colors of red, white, and blue. Click the picture below for directions.

Fun Winter Worksheets and Activities for Kids

Happy New Year!!!

WINTER is here in New England! We got lots and lots and lots of SNOW on Saturday and Sunday!


Winter Math Worksheets

Now that we are all shoveled out, I want to point out some Free WINTER WORKSHEETS that I have for your students. Here are two fun 120 charts and an addition table.

These free worksheets are at my website which just got a make-over by Go Daddy! Check it out! I think it (my new website where I keep my freebies for you) is organized much better than my old website. I hope it will be easier for you to use.

Just click on the picture above or the link below to go to my website to get the free worksheets.
www.LearningWorkroom.com

If you are looking for a nice educational craft to make with your students, I recommend paper plate clocks. Paper plate clocks are always a hit and can be used over and over again with the kids while learning to tell time. Click here to go to my blog post which gives directions for this fun winter clock.

Winter Paper Plate Clock


Now you probably need a good book to read with your students. I recommend a poem by Robert Frost - a wonderful kids' version with illustrations by Susan Jeffers. Check with your local library to see if they have any copies. Read my post about this book here.
