FREEBIE Sample of My Presidents' Day Pack!

Presidents' Day is a perfect time to squeeze in great history lessons incorporating reading and writing. Students can read about some of our greatest presidents, can learn about coins with great presidents, make crafts, complete activity sheets, write reports, and can write letters to the current president.
These activities and more are included in my 59 page Presidents Day FUN Pack.

Three different booklets are included:

10 page George Washington Booklet with key words and pages with fill in the blank lines.

11 page Abraham Lincoln Booklet with key words and pages with fill in the blank lines.

6 page Name That President on Our U.S. Coins Booklet with key words and fill in the blank lines.
Scroll down to bottom for this freebie booklet, a sample from my complete pack!

Choose from several different writing papers to have students write about the presidents or write a letter to President Obama!


Send the letters to the White House and get a response from the president! 
Send to:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

This is what we received last year when we sent our letters off. My students were so excited that the president received our letters and they were able to hear back from him!

Flipping Over Word Family FLIP Books!


I had so much fun making and using my growing collection of Science Flip Books, (Flipping Over FLIP Books Blog Post) that I now have a growing collection of Word Family Flip Books! And my 1st graders love making them and reading them over and over!

I plan to add short vowel word families, but the flip books I have made so far include long vowel words since that is what we are working on right now in 1st grade:


These FLIP Books are so fun and easy to make! Once they understand the simple assembly directions, students are ready to go!

First students cut on the black lines (dotted lines are for folding).


Then students assemble and staple on the left side of the book.



Students color the vowel pair or the vowel and silent e so those letters stand out (and their eyes are drawn to what is making the long vowel when they read the words). Then they circle whether the word is real or not real.


Students are then ready to read and reread the books either alone or with another reader to solidify those long vowel words.

Easy Peasy!

Flipping Over FLIP Books!



FLIP Books are becoming incredibly popular, and no wonder! They are fun to color, cut, glue and assemble, AND the finished product is a book filled with great information that supplements just about any unit. 







This collection of FLIP books continues to grow because I am finding so many units that we teach where a FLIP Book would make a great supplement. Once they are assembled, they become books that can be read and re-read during small group reading, during center time, or for partner reading. They are also great resources for later report writing!

This is why I'm loving these FLIP Books!

So making the flip books is incredibly easy. They fit together like a puzzle.

Each book comes with directions:



             Color                                       Cut                                          Glue

  
                                           Assemble                           Staple
