What's included?Celebrate President’s Day with Abe Lincoln
After learning about Abraham Lincoln, use either of these activities for students to demonstrate what they have learned about our 16th President. Each has a writing component. One simply a fact and the other several facts and an opinion. You might also want to combine the crafts and have the children make the top hat writing with the writing beneath the hat and display it with the popsicle stick log cabin and penny. Whatever you decide, your children will have fun learning about Abraham Lincoln.

I learned a LOOOOOng time ago that a little sweetness goes a long way so I have tried to look at the positive side of life as a retired teacher of 30+ years, a wife, mom and Mimi of three. Who doesn’t want to visit their Mimi and experience a reality “Candyland” game with all kinds of forbidden pleasures like lollipops, Hershey hugs and kisses, cupcakes, brownies and all those sugary treats, They can visit and experience the sweetness of Mimi’s and then go back home on a sugary high!
My teaching style was and still is to keep all lessons dazzling, fun, hands on and whatever each child needs to learn and grow! I LOVE to differentiate instruction as much as I can! Let’s face it, each year you get a classroom full of kiddos as different as a box of chocolates...Each piece might look pretty much the same on the outside, but when you take a bite, you can see and taste the difference...all sugary and sweet, but different in many ways!
I hope you enjoy using all these lessons and ideas as much as I did during my teaching career. Have fun and remember to enjoy each day because it is definitely a SWEET TREAT!!
