February can be filled with so many great learning opportunities. I usually focus on Groundhog’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and President’s Day. Here are some of my favorite resources for these days.
Another great freebie I found last year comes from Jennifer over at First Grade Blue Skies.
Then comes Valentine’s Day. For some kids it’s the only holiday that exists in February. Before we open Valentines and enjoy sweet treats, the students get time to create a really quick and easy craft. This is by no means my creation, but I made myself a set of printables for when the die-cut machine isn’t available or handy. Just click on the picture to grab them:
Here’s one last idea I saw online that could be really easy for you to make with your students:
Next up is President’s Day. Usually we are still working through our Nonfiction unit at this time, so we use the following texts to learn about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. You can grab the graphic organizers from First Grade Fanatics. The books are from Scholastic’s Easy Reader Biographies set.
