1-2-3 Come Do Some Constitution Day Activities With Me 

constitution day activities, constitution day centers, constitution day crafts, constitution day emergent readerI'm all for easy, when the administration throws these "According to the law, everyone has to teach something about the Constitution on April 17th..." zingers at us.

With that in mind, and because I couldn't find an emergent reader that simplified the Constitution for PK-K, I decided to make my own.

This little, non-fiction Constitution booklet, is filled with basic facts, in easy to understand, kid-friendly terms, which help explain what the Constitution is all about.

Students "read" the simple sentences (I used plenty of words from the Dolch lists) then trace and write the main idea word.  Doing so, will help build vocabulary and reinforce comprehension.

They match my Constitution Day Number Puzzles, which makes for a nice coordinated center/station.

You can also play an "I Have; Who Has?" game. "I have George Washington. Who has his name card?"

Use the picture cards to build vocabulary and explain a bit about the Constitution.
"The men on these cards are some of the "Framers" that worked on the Constitution." etc.

Use them as flashcards to see who can tell what's on the card and how that person or thing relates to Constitution Day.

My other FREEBIE for today is one of the puzzles from the 25 Patriotic Number Puzzles packet.
