Have you ever wondered which President we celebrate on Presidents' Day? I was curious as well, so I did a little research. The result was this fun realistic fiction reader's theater.
This toolkit includes: -a 5 page reader's theater script -reader response questions -context clue word work -journal prompt -summary strategy work -compare and contrast -informational fact work -answer key Estimated Lexile Measure: 850L
Summary: The students at Caldwell School are doing research in order to create a living museum. They are each responsible for learning as much about a significant American as they can in order to give a presentation to their peers dressed up as that noteworthy individual. One student struggles to find the best-fitting costume and a classmate comes to his rescue. In the end the presentation goes off without a hitch and students learn a great deal about two early Presidents and how they have come to be celebrated.
Your students won't even realize they are working with this fun script and literature tool kit.
Use this resource to teach about Presidents' Day, use for any day fluency/comprehension/word work/writing, or utilize as plans for a substitute teacher. Your students will be engaged and completely diligent.
