What Do You Read for President's Day?

I finally finished both of these little packets and I am glad to have them for my little kiddos. Today I introduced the Lincoln emergent reader and they loved it. First I used the teacher version and then I told them they could have a copy of the same book. We practiced the text, highlighted the star words and they all shouted, "Happy Birthday Mr. Lincoln. It was a big hit and tomorrow I am doing a guided drawing of him based on these graphics. We also made Lincoln hats with a penny glued in the middle. Yup, my partner loves Social Studies!
 These are available at Tpt and I am ready to put them up at Teachers Notebook. Here is where you can grab Lincoln  and Washington is available here.

These look great! I wish I had a bigger budget. I will put them on my wishlist and maybe next year will be better. In the mean time I will continue with my skills at making the president books I have 'kinder-friendly'. :)

Love both of them! My kiddoes cab tell me all about Abe, especially how he wanted everyone to be free. They even made a connection to MLK. Their writing is excellent. Thanks again, Pat I.

My Kinderbears loved the Abe book. We are completing George on Tuesday. Have you thought about a Betsy Ross Book? Or Martin Luther King? Or Pocahontas? Or her dad Chief Powhattan? We have an especially hard time in VA finding Kinderfriendly books on these guys.
Thank you for sharing your creativity with all of us.
