American Symbols

This month I will be teaching my students about American symbols.  I will be using many of the books listed in my February Book Picks.  (Please sign up.  I am starting to feel symptoms of the Weakest Link Syndrome. )

Tomorrow, we will launch the unit.  We will begin with our flag.  I plan to read this book and this one.  Then, we will complete a tree map about our learning.  Would you like a copy of the tree map?

I love teaching this unit to my kinders.  What are some things that you do to make this engaging for your students?  I am looking for new ideas.

Happy Teaching and Learning!

  4. Hi there!
    One of my teammates had the idea for the students to make their own flag. They use symbols that represent things that they like. They turned out really cute. Then they had to write about what the symbols represented. Just a thought.
