President's Day

Last year, we focused our President's theme day around Abraham Lincoln. This year, we talked about George Washington.

We ate his likeness for breakfast (on a president place mat!).....We found him and other presidents in a game by reading the backs of a pile of mixed up flashcards....We read books about him (and talked about fiction, non-fiction and dental care).....and put the presidents in number order.
(B liked running over the flashcards and scrunching them.)
W helped me make bingo cards using this template and president stickers we had.Then, we played Bingo. In order to win, W had to tell one fact about each president he covered. We also sang the the President song. VIDEO

and ate cherry pie (with a quick reminder of fractions)!Yum!

Great President's Day activities! I love the bingo w/ the facts and breakfast! Did you cut that out or did you have a cookie cutter?

Wow! I'm very impressed with W's president song! Great job W!

It looks like you had a great educational day. Your post definitely made me think of/miss my teaching days. I can't wait until E is older and I can do these things with her!

W did a great job! Does he have that memorized? So cute!

Your blog always makes me feel like a bad mom! :) (I mean that in a nice way) You do so much with your boys!
