This is the first year I'm going to do President's Day activities with my first graders and I'm VERY excited! In the past we've had staff development on President's Day, and we were scheduled to do that again, but after all of our snow and ice vacation days, the district changed it to an instructional day. I've made a couple of activities for my kiddos and can't wait to use some of the FANTASTIC ideas I've seen on other blogs. I'm not sure how I'm going to fit it all in! Here are two things we're going to be doing on Monday - a job application to be President and a making words activity with the letters in presidents. My students use letter tiles for making words, so it doesn't have letters to cut out, but you could always add that in. Since I use many of the ideas I find out there in blog world, I thought I'd put some of my own back out there - like blog karma :). I'm in the middle of making a noun, verb, adjective word sort so I will post that when it's finished. Have a great weekend blog friends!
