Free President's Day Poem!

OK, so I was inspired to make a mini book for the poem that I wrote for President's Day.  I know!  We will study this poem as a class for sight words, rhyming words and punctuation and then add it to our Poetry Journals. Anyway, I will try to make a reader for the kids to go with the poem but for now, here goes... President's Day Poem

Star Spangled Sight Word Match Up Game!

A new game to play for President's Day and our study of America to help with that sight word reading!  These are all of the sight words used in Scott Foresman for Units 1-5 plus color words.  I can't enough of all of these fun graphics and I NEED as many Go-To Activities as I can get my hands on!

Valentine Nonsense Word Flash Card Game

I put this game together to play in small groups to help increase nonsense word fluency.  You mix the poem cards in with the nonsense words and when you get to one, you stand up and sing song the poem.  The kids love it!! If I play it with one group, I sure better play it with the other two or I don't hear the end of it! :) 

OK, I don't know why the first two cards on the first two pages are all wonky! When I click on it and download it from Scribd, it displays normally to print.  Let me know if you have any trouble with it.
