Are you looking for something quick and easy for President’s Day on Monday?

I designed several that I think your students will enjoy.

Since counting to 100 by 10’s is a standard, I wanted to design something with skip counting in mind, that would take the “same-old, same-old” out of having students keep reciting that sequence of numbers.

I decided to build Lincoln’s log cabin and number the logs. I’ve also included a template that counts by 5’s to 100 as well.

Simply run off whichever templates suit your needs, on light and dark brown construction paper.

You can review rectangles and triangles with your students as both shapes are represented.

Students cut out their pieces and glue them to a sheet of blue or green construction paper.

To add a bit more pizzazz, give each student a penny, and have them stick it inside the doorway, so that when they open the flap, President Lincoln can greet them.

I hope you can pop back tomorrow for another idea for President’s Day.
