Happy President’s Day. Well, here’s the deal….I live in Nashville and the mere mention of a snowflake sends the city into shutdown mode. Now…imagine a forecast of 4-8 inches and some ice. People, it’s the end of the world. OK…not really but it’s pretty bad. I mean we’ve had snow days for a dusting of snow…so you can imagine what 4-8 inches will do.
I went ahead and planned for the week, but I seriously doubt we will have school at all this week because it’s not going to get above freezing until Friday. HMMMMM I’m sad because tomorrow as a professional development day and I was scheduled to do 3 presentations for teachers from all over the district. BUMMER!
So here is our presidential week of fun and learning!
As always, you can download my lesson plans by clicking on the picture!
Each day we will read about a president and use the non-fiction and informational books we read as our research. We will fill in our learning on our schema maps and in our research journals.
Friday, we will write about what we would do if we were president. I love this activity because it’s so funny to see what a 5 year old thinks the President does!!!
We will be using my Presidential Research creation to conduct our research and writing!
