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.

I LOVE Eric Carle, especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  I can teach all sorts of concepts with that story. 

It's a bit early to be posting butterfly "stuff" that teachers are usually working on in April here in the midwest, however, I thought I'd post it now as I had the caterpillar eating 100 things, that fits in perfect for 100-Day, which some of you still haven't celebrated.

I have 2 different "last" pages for you to choose from: 1 celebrates 100-Day, the other has an ending that fits in nicely no matter what day of the year it is.

Since the original Very Hungry Caterpillar goes through the days of the week, I decided to have this starving caterpillar eat through the hours in a day, so that I could cover telling time.

Students trace the letters and numbers and make a snowman or penguin slider to insert their strips into.

I've included a colorful snowman and penguin as well as ones that are plain, so students can color their own.

Give students a glue bottle or for little ones, put a dollop of glue on a small paper plate and have them use a Q-tip to make X number of dots as they count, then sprinkle with silver glitter after you have finished working with the sliders and have reviewed whatever lessons you wanted to.

Students set their sliders some place safe 'til they are dry and can take them home.

How do you make a slider?

Simply run off the templates, (I use white construction paper so they are more durable) and rough cut them, so that students can practice their own cutting skills, which will exercise and strengthen hand muscles.

You may want to slit the lines in the slider's body before hand.  This is difficult for little ones to manage with safety scissors.  I use an X-acto knife.

Students trim, color and trace their slider and then insert whatever strips you want them to review.

Encourage parents, via a newsletter to reinforce these lessons at home.

You can sing the Alphabet Song while pulling letters through the window.

You can play "I Spy" and have a student call out a letter or number.  Everyone pulls their strip through til they find it and then raise their slider, so that you see at a glance who has what so that you can whole group assess and help those who are struggling.

Laminate a set for yourself and use as a fun way to assess individuals as well.
