It is time once again for Poppins Book Nook and this month’s theme is Presidents!
Feel free to join in the fun with the linky at the end.
We chose to read Smart About the Presidents, a colorful book of interesting facts about our country’s leaders.Each president has his own page that lists the years of his term and some very interesting background information. Did you know that George Washington’s staff brushed his horse’s teeth every day? Or that Calvin Coolidge had a pet raccoon?
We really needed to work on memorizing the presidents, and a popular way of doing that is to sing the names to the tune of “Ten Little Indians”. There is something about putting words to music that makes it stick! I created a printable with all of the names broken up into groups to match the tune. You are welcome to download a copy for yourself!

We have also enjoyed these Presidential books over the years:
John & Abigail Adams: An American Love Story
I found some fun resources to help us memorize the Presidents:
