Happy Fourth of July!

Patriotic Chalkboard Printables
Independence Day reminds me of hotdogs and BBQ from the grill.
Apple pie topped with homemade ice cream.
Lemonade or a tall glass of sweet tea..
maybe these are all southern things.
Either way! Celebrate our freedom and the land we love.

HI Friends, This is Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching.

I hope you are enjoying your 4th of July.

In the patriotic spirit of things let's talk about a few USA goodies.

I usually teach a unit on the USA around President’s Day each February. Sometimes it drags on for a few weeks- other years I might do one week.

We always learn about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. I also teach facts and show pictures of our current President.


This is also the time I teach map skills and focus on recognizing the USA map and our state. Map Skills is one of my favorite skills to teach and the kids LOVE it! 

 I put out a special table of books about our country. 
Included are picture albums that were from a trip to Washington DC. 
Nothing like seeing a picture of your teacher in front of the White House!

We did Lincoln and Washington directed drawings.

After I took the directed drawings down- I made them into class books. They were a favorite for the rest of the year.

After we learn important {and fun} America facts- we play a little trivia game.

These trivia questions are a free download in my store.
I have been pinning like crazy to update my USA pinterest board in hopes you might check it out and repin a few ideas. It is jammed pack with tons of red, white and blue!
