On to the linky....I'm going to share books for President's Day. Here are some of the many I own:
To introduce Lincoln today, I asked the kids to think of characteristics of a notable person. First, we had to figure out what notable meant. They did pretty good, though at first they thought it was someone who takes good notes! LOL! They then came up with the list in green. I read aloud
A. Lincoln and Me and we filled in the chart at the bottom based on the book. After that we went back to the list of characteristics and discussed the ones that we think describe Lincoln. I put a little blue star next to those. We also discussed how people thought Lincoln was ugly and strange looking, yet we know he accomplished great things! So sometimes you can't judge a book by it's cover! It was a good little opener.
Here are a bunch of books I own and just ♥♥♥:
We will be working on research papers about presidents over the next couple of weeks. I created two freebies for President's Day. You can find them in my TpT store ✯here✯ and ✯here✯. We will be using my "All About" Presidents poster to display our research. I also created this President Pack with some creative alternatives to "traditional" research papers. The kids can make a Facebook like page, write Tweets, or a create a blog page for the president they are researching. My "All About" poster is included in this pack, too!
Link up with Denise at Sunny Days and share your favorite books!!
