If you have a webspace you try to keep updated weekly for students you might be interested in this series of blog posts I have been writing. Each week on Friday I post a short blog post that can be put on your school page. I include a graphic, links to resources, and often additional content such as a PDF download or code for a Book Box Widget. I have sets of fall-themed blog posts at TeachersPayTeachers and I’m adding individual posts this winter, which are free. If you can use them and like them then you might want to consider a donation. I’m continuing with my new TeachersPayTeachers pricing model for some of my content. Only pay for what you like and use. Here’s this Presidents’ Day post.
This week begins with Presidents’ Day. President’s Day is always the third Monday in February because it is a day very close to the birthdays of both President George Washington and President Abraham Lincoln.
