Happy 4th of July

Patriotic Chalkboard Printables

Independence Day reminds me of hotdogs and BBQ from the grill.

Apple pie topped with homemade ice cream.

Lemonade or a tall glass of sweet tea..

maybe these are all southern things.

Either way! Celebrate our freedom and the land we love.

HI Friends, This is Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching.

I hope you are enjoying your 4th of July.

I usually teach a unit on the USA around President’s Day each February. Sometimes it drags on for a few weeks- other years I might do one week.


We always learn about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. I also teach facts and show pictures of our current President.



This is also the time I teach map skills and focus on recognizing the USA map and our state. I put out a special table of books about our country. Included are picture albums that were from a trip to Washington DC. Nothing like seeing a picture of your teacher in front of the White House!


We did Lincoln and Washington directed drawings.


After I took the directed drawings down- I made them into class books. They were a favorite for the rest of the year.


After we learn important {and fun} America facts- we play a little trivia game.


These trivia questions are a free download in my store.

I have been pinning like crazy to update my USA pinterest board in hopes you might check it out and repin a few ideas. It is jammed pack with tons of red, white and blue!


“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.” -Franklin D. Roosevelt
