This week at school, we will finish up penguin projects, make some fun Valentine crafts and talk about Abraham Lincoln. I thought I would share some of my favorite Abraham Lincoln and George Washington books I like to read to the class. We usually do our American Symbols unit this time of year, but with our upcoming classroom move and school demo, we changed our year around and we are now doing our American Symbols unit at the end of the year.
Here are links to the Abraham Lincoln books. The first one is out of print, but so fun for the kids. If you can get your hands on it, it is worth it!
