Hello! Thank you for looking at – Proud to Present President’s Day Language Activities – 7 Diverse Language Lessons.
I designed this lesson for President’s Day, and as many of you know, my groups of students have diverse speech and language goals, so this packet contains four diverse lessons. Activities are as follows:
Lesson 1 – This lesson was designed to develop subject-verb agreement by identifying which verb fits best with either the –s morphological marker or -ed past tense marker and then writing the correct word into the box. Completed result is a mini-book that students will be able to take home. Mini-book will end up to be 16 pages.
Lesson 2 – Print, Cut and Go – Story and following directions activity. Directions contain basic linguistic concepts and entire lesson is in black and white for easy printing. 11 directives, 2 scenes and response questions included
Lesson 3 – Did You Know? Responding to varied ‘wh’ questions after listening to interesting, non-fiction short passages about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington or associated presidential items. 52 passages of one to two sentences in length and a reflection page for the students to complete.
Lesson 4 – Where Are the Presidents? Mini-book to develop use of prepositions / spatial concepts. - Mini-book will be 16 pages once completed.
Lesson 5 - 20 Social scenario questions surrounding Presidents’ Day theme to develop pragmatic language skills. Thought provoking, multi-faceted questions.
Lesson 6 - This was designed for small group instruction and so they could be used adequately as card movie scenes or be cut into a mini-book. This is a ‘Print and Go’ book to develop inferencing skills when responding to questions regarding a movie scene picture. All of the 16 mini scenes are black and white for easy printing. The mini-book can be used for instruction, carry-over or review of inferencing skills.
Lesson 7 - What Would You Buy and Why? A perspective taking activity. Students are provided with a historical figure and a statement of what they like, etc. The students are then required to determine a perfect gift they would buy for the person. They can either draw a picture, write the name of the gift or write a sentence and explain why you bought it for him / her. 10 historical figures included.
