What did you do to celebrate President’s Day this year? Keep reading to find out how these were created:
Last week we only had school for 3 days due to President’s Day. We spent that week reading two biographies, completing some graphic organizers, writing a paragraph to summarize our findings, and completing a craft to accompany our writing. We managed to finish everything except the crafts.
We used two of Scholastic’s Easy Reader Biographies. As we read and discussed, students identified nonfiction text features along the way. After we finished, students completed these graphic organizers and then glued them into their black & white composition books (get these graphic organizers here). I forgot to snap photos of their finished Abe Lincoln graphic organizers.
Next, we combined our new learning to write a paragraph together. One paragraph was about George Washington and the other about Abraham Lincoln.
Throughout the week students traced and cut out the pieces for their crafts. Here are some close-ups of the final products:
