President's Day

Since we were out of school for President's Day- I decided to use our integrated studies time to teach about the Presidents.  We made a President's Day book from teacherspayteachers site.

Then, on Friday we talked about the American flag and what the Pledge of Allegiance means. So, we made a Foodie  Friday treat - American flag!

We also completed a writing unit on "What I would do if I was the President."

Monday- students made a list of past Presidents and what they were known for

Tuesday- students began their four square writing on what they would do if they were the president.

*We wrote the introduction and conclusion together because they struggle with this concept.  

Wednesday-continue four square

Thursday- start final draft

Friday- finish final copy

Check out some of the final papers. I was so proud of them!!
