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.

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.

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.

Free Counting Puzzles and A Cyber Sale

Here's a fun way to help the kids reinforce their counting skills. By using these fun puzzles the kids will be using their fine motor skills to make a picture in combination with practicing their math skills of counting (number sequence).


Math Counting Puzzles
Children put the puzzle pieces into the proper number sequence. The puzzles are self-correcting in that the proper number sequence will reveal a picture. For these puzzles, the pictures revealed will be some woodland animals.

There are 6 puzzles in this set with different number sequences so that you can decide which number sequence your students need to work on. Each puzzle has 10 pieces.

The number sequences are:
Counting by 1s - Numbers 1-10
Counting by 1s - Numbers 11-20
Counting by 1s - Numbers 21-30
Counting by 2s - Numbers 2-20
Counting by 5s - Numbers 5-50
Counting by 10s - Numbers 10-100

All you need to do is print the puzzles, cut into strips, and laminate if desired. I like to print them on photo paper or card stock.

You can download these puzzles for free from my TpT Shop.  Just click on the picture above! :)

Also if you LOVE a SALE and  need some more teaching resources, Teachers Pay Teachers is having a huge Cyber Sale on Monday and Tuesday (November 28-29). Don't forget to use the Code CYBER2016 to get an extra 10% off  lots of products which will already be on sale!
