We read Celebrating President's Day by Kim Jordano. Then we completed a nonfiction reading response. The students copied the word presidents and illustrated themselves as President. Then we talked with our partners about what we learned about the President's job from the book. We shared out and choose three facts to write. We stretched out the words together and I filled in the chunks you can't hear or they didn't know.
We created Uncle Sam hats. Then we rolled dice and used the students to act out addition stories. Then students went to their seats and played President's Day roll and cover addition with their partner.
