Presidents' Day... and a Freebie!

Hi, Teaching Friends!

Here's your Punctuation Question of the Day:

Presidents Day, a day to honor all of the presidents, Washington and Lincoln in particular


Presidents' Day, a day of honor that "belongs" to the presidents

or even

President's Day, which I've seen but I'm fairly certain can't be justified.

I have the same issues when it comes to Mothers/ Mother's/ Mothers' Day. Heavy stuff, eh, my friends? Not so much. It sort of gets you thinking, 'though...

Whatever your opinion is on this earthshaking question, it's time to get ready to teach about the presidents! Here's my Common Core cross-curricular pack, which includes four literacy and four math activities. The standards are included, which I hope will make it easier for all of you! And if you use standards specific to your own state, do you know that you can find them on the product listing page at TPT? That's a neat and handy update at the site!

Here are a few of the items that are included.

You can get this free math activity from the resource by clicking on the White House. Enjoy!

 If you're working on using the 120 chart for practice with adding and subtracting ten, here's a resource you'll also like! You'll find lots of opportunities to differentiate with these worksheets... or turn the worksheets into games for your math tubs by inserting them into a plastic sleeve!


Happy Teaching!
