Classroom Freebies

Patriotic Star Craft

I roll my Presidents' Day activities in with our study of coins. 

When my kiddos can identify all of the US coins, they get to make this "You are 'cent-sational'!" patriotic, star necklace.

I give them a brand new penny to put in the center with a glue dot to attach it.
Simple, but they are thrilled!

The craftivity works for any patriotic holiday.
To add some writing to the activity, have students write why they feel they are "cent-sational" on the back.

To use as a Presidents' Day activity, have students choose a President, and write why they feel he was the best.
