President’s Day Poem
President’s Day is one holiday that is harder for students to grasp. One way to get students talking is to read the poem Vote for Me (FREE link HERE). This is a great way to get students talking about what makes a great leader.
February A Poem Each Week
The February A Poem Each Week has four great February-themed poem questions and activities. These are great to use in literacy centers, guided reading, and as your read aloud on busy days.
Another great idea for a February bulletin board can be created with haikus. Students can write haikus about the things in nature that they love. You can get a free lesson and haiku template in the article, For the Love of Haikus.
