Happy Presidents' Day!

It's just around the corner and coming up fast, if the speed at which January blew by is any indication.

This patriotic heart "craftivity" makes a sweet valentine, as well as an easy writing prompt.

There are 5 writing prompt hearts for students to choose from, that they can glue to the back, including a comparison and contrast one.

Use the patriotic heart "craftivity" for fine motor-puzzle practice.  Remind students that the star's stripes are in an ABAB pattern.

Post a different quote on the board through the month of February, &/or make an overheard of quotes and have students choose several to add to their blank posters.

I've included posters with quotes and ones without.

I've also added the President's real signatures to the posters. Lincoln's real "autograph" is extremely sought after.. At one auction it commanded a price of over $700,000!

After students have shared, collate their quote posters and make into a class book.

Punch holes in the tops of students' patriotic hearts and hang from the ceiling with fish line.
