President’s Day is Monday, February 21. Usually we associate President’s Day with President Washington and President Lincoln. Why not teach about a more current President this year? Some possible ideas include–
- Presidents Roosevelt and Truman – World War II.
- President Kennedy – Jackie Kennedy remarked that “There’ll be great presidents again…but there’ll never be another Camelot.” Watch the Camelot video and discuss this quote.
- President Jimmy Carter – Habitat for Humanity. Discuss whether you believe he made more of an impact during his presidency or after his presidency.
And remember – fun learning is forever learning!

|Daddy, I Want to Read is a series of five beginning reading books designed for beginning students who cannot read at all, and do not know the names or sounds of any letters. As the students progress through the books, the students end by reading words such as laughter, should, enough, height, auction, Epiphany, they’re, and won’t. It takes approximately one year to complete all five books, at the rate of two reading lessons per school day (eg. a morning lesson and an afternoon lesson).
In addition to the five reading books, an Instruction Manual is included.
