February is stacked with opportunities for learning our rich history. Not only is it Black History Month, but we have President’s day, Lincoln’s birthday and Washington’s birthday. Here a few activities you can do in the classroom to celebrate our Founding Fathers!
Favorite Books for President’s Day
The one book I always love to read for President’s Day is Duck for President. It’s silly and engaging for kids, but still packed with some good vocab and content for the holiday! To make this duck craft, I just used a few pieces from the duck in my Farm Animals Easy Art pack on a paper plate and added the hat!
Need visuals and comprehension questions for story time? Be sure to check out my Election Day story time pack. This pack is loaded with the visuals needed to go over the key details in the book, plus interactive WH questions to have your students answer after reading!
It can be super hard to find non-fiction biography books for our students with special needs, but I absolutely LOVE these “my itty bitty bio” readers that are FREE on Epic Books. This website is free for teachers, so sign up ASAP for a free account! Click for the George Washington book and the Abraham Lincoln book.
President’s Day Crafts & Writing Activities
This Easy Art pack includes 2 fun crafts for students to do. All Easy Art packs include prep plans, easy print sheets, picture visual direction cards, whole page NO PREP step by step visuals to pull up on any device, differentiated writing pages for the 2 easy art activities. The writing pages are perfect for students to complete at a daily writing center.
We also like to make our American flags from the Summer Easy Art Pack.
President’s Day Sensory Bin
This year, we got to check out The Creative Thinker’s Box before it releases, and look how fun this sensory bin is! Water beads and Presidential TOOBS for the win. I can’t wait to see what March’s box has in store! Be sure to following The Creative Thinkers Box on Instagram to get more details and find out about new box releases.
