I like to start with a short video. This one gives a brief overview (less than two minutes) of President’s Day. Once we have the basics of when and why we celebrate President’s Day, we’re ready to dig deeper and focus on George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
When learning about Washington and Lincoln, there are so many books to choose from. Here are my favorites that I use for both guided reading and shared reading. You probably have them in your classroom library, too!
But that’s not all. I also love to combine our new learning with a craft.
You can read more about these projects in this post.
You will find most of the resources mentioned above in these book companions:
