Finding nonfiction materials at an appropriate level for Presidents Day for young students is always difficult!! With that thought in mind, I created this Shared Reading PowerPoint about Abraham Lincoln for Presidents Day in kindergarten (or first grade) classrooms!!
This book has one fact per page with illustrations to support young readers. Many sight words are used to support early readers as they begin to read nonfiction text.
Title Page: Abraham Lincoln
Page 2: Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12th.
Page 3: He was born in Kentucky.
Page 4: He lived in a log cabin.
Page 5: When he was a little boy, he would read by candlelight.
Page 6: He was the 16th President of the United States.
Page 7: He made a great speech called the Gettysburg Address.
Page 8: We see his picture on the penny.
Page 9: We see his picture on the five dollar bill.
Page 10: We remember him with the Lincoln Memorial.
Page 11: We celebrate Presidents Day in February.
As you can see, this text is more difficult than the other readers that I usually post; however, with opportunities for shared reading, kindergarteners can read this book successfully and learn about Abraham Lincoln and Presidents Day as well. This book would also be great for first graders around Presidents Day!!

I also have a Reading and Writing Unit which includes this book, as well as a matching teacher version, a prewriting graphic organizer, writing papers, similar materials about George Washington, a Presidents Day Word Wall, a word building page, and 2 word searches (different levels).
