Presidents Day

Presidents Day
Presidents Day was a fantastic learning experience in preschool. During election season we learned and discussed the job role of the President, where he lives, and even what he flies around in. The students know about our current president. Presidents Day gave the students the chance to learn about the history of our Presidents.

During the week of Presidents Day we focused on George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. We read and learned about the life story of both Presidents. We discussed what it may have been like to be alive when these Presidents were in office. The students also learned about what coins and bills these Presidents were on. To help them remember we sang this song (to the Muffin Man song):

Do you know who's on the penny?
On the penny? On the penny?
Do you know who's on the penny?
Abraham Lincoln.

Do you know who's on the quarter?
On the quarter? On the quarter?
Do you know who's on the quarter?
George Washington.

We also made a portrait of both Washington and Lincoln.

Thanks for stopping by,
Mrs. Winter
