Finding materials to help young students understand Constitution Day for young students is always difficult!! With that thought in mind, I created this Shared Reading PowerPoint for Constitution Day in kindergarten classrooms!! This PowerPoint can be projected for whole class shared reading or printed to be used as a full-color class book!!
On each slide, there is a person (boy, girl, grandmother, grandfather, teacher, police officer, fire fighter, President Obama). In the speech bubble, the person says, "The Constitution is the law for me." The very repetitive structure of this story will allow even the earliest readers to be successful, while still reinforcing the message that the Constitution tells the laws for everyone in our country. This text also allows early readers to practice tracking and to begin to recognize some basic sight words (the, is, for, and me) while celebrating an important (and required!!) day!
I am also posting an emergent reader little book which will accompany this PowerPoint perfectly; click here
for the little book:)
Thanks for looking and happy teaching!!!
