Kid President activities: Kid President craft: President’s Day, Kid President

Do you use Kid President videos to teach community building, language arts, and writing? If not, you should! Kids love these videos and now there are activities to go with them! The opportunities for teaching figurative language, writing dialogue, theme and purpose, using quotation marks, addressing speaking and listening standards, building community, and showing kindness are endless! I’ve put together this FUN, easy to prep, high engagement video companion to use with ANY Kid President video. It’s loaded with lessons and visuals, printables, and 12 different activities to support visual literacy, language, writing, and speaking and listening standards. I’ve included lesson plans, objectives, examples, and teacher’s notes for each lesson and activity.
Kindness, empowerment, and inspiration are just a few of the themes in Kid President videos. Integrate these into your teaching and build community in your own classroom or school-wide with the included kindness activities. I’ve even added 3 different bulletin board and hallway displays complete with title lettering and décor elements.

Use these activities throughout the year for a fun and meaningful way to practice as you teach these skills!
