President's Week reading and writing

Last week we celebrated President's Day ... but for the whole week! :) In reading and writing, the kids did different stations that had to do with President's past and present. The wrote "Did you know ..."s about Barack Obama (our Black History Month person that week), made George Washington tricorn hats, made words using the letters in Washington and Lincoln, did timelines for Washington and Lincoln, made a Lincoln head and wrote about him, and sorted President's Day themed real and nonsense words. They also practiced their vocabulary by making sentences with different words, building words to match pictures on Legos, and made words by changing the beginning letters in words with spoons.
