Presidents Day Free Resources, Books and Free Center Activities

You can view this post by clicking HERE

When I was growing up in the fifties and sixties we celebrated Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays on their actually birthdays. Today we combine their birthday celebrations and celebrate them together.  Many of you just have a one day holiday but some school district have a whole week winter break. I have put together some great resources for your classroom Presidents' Day celebrations.

These are two of my favorite books about Washington and Lincoln. You can find a complete list of wonderful books for Read Alouds as well as for independent reading by clicking on each picture below.

If you are looking for some great craft ideas for  your  students to make I found a few great sites. How about this cute George Washington Cotton Ball and Paper Craft or a Patriotic Hat? Click on both pictures to find lots of craft ideas.

There are lots of free activities, poems, puzzles and math problems at Family Education. Just click HERE to find 50 of them or HERE to access a complete list.

If you are looking for a complete unit of reading and writing activities you may want to check out my latest packet, "Presidents Day" for Grades 2-3:
