Seasonal Saturday: Presidents' Day Book Units!

I have already received such a positive response to my new blog series, Seasonal Saturday, and I thank you so much!  My goal is to share with you two literacy products that are related to the current season, including picture book activities and units for preschool to grade 2.  Collaboration and sharing is so important, and it's also something we teachers do naturally!  Hopefully, you will find some new ideas to implement in your classroom and meet new bloggers and teacher-authors.

The very first feature is from Jamie at The Teachers' Aide. Just in time for Presidents' Day, Jamie has two literacy packets that you can use next week!  If you have already read these picture books for an election unit, they would be perfect to reread/revisit with fresh and fun activities to celebrate Presidents' Day!

#1 Duck for President by Doreen Cronin


This (20) page unit contains a story map, vocabulary work, comprehension strategies such as cause-effect, sequencing, design a new cover, and more! Looks like this is crammed full of thoughtful, meaningful activities for second and third gradersClick here to see the listing!

#2 Arthur Meets the President by Marc Brown


With a similar design to the above unit, this literacy packet boasts (22) pages for this adorable book that kids love!  I like how the story map includes problem and solution, setting, characters, plus three events.  After completing the Duck for President packet, I'm thinking students could work on this Arthur packet indepdently since the activities are similar and coordinate. Click here to see the listing for more details.

Make sure you check out The Teachers' Aide store for even more literacy items, plus math, science, and a great selection of seasonal items!

Thank you, Jamie, for sharing your wonderful book units!

Whether you have Monday off or not, have a marvelous Monday as we pause to honor our current and past presidents!
