Celebrating our FREEDOM on the 4th with 4 FREEBIES!


Here are 4 Freebies to celebrate FREEdom on the 4th of July.
America celebrates her birthday

on the 4th of July.

We'll pack a picnic

and watch fireworks in the sky.

Virginia's history standards for kindergarten includes teaching about Independence Day.  It's a little more difficult to teach about Independence Day when you aren't in school in July...so, this was always my last shared reading of the year.  It is completed with a student art activity showing a skyline and fireworks overhead.

Growing up, the 4th of July meant camping and a peach cobbler.  My birthday is the 2nd of July, but we always celebrated with my extended family at a campground and a peach cobbler for dessert.

Today, it means FREE things for your students.

FREEBIES ON THE 4TH

Here are 4 Freebies to celebrate FREEdom on the 4th of July. 1.  America 4 Square

I have included a 4 square writing template and a student-made 4 square with a July 4th theme. Typically this format is used with early readers and writers as predictable text. Students could make sentences, "We love the USA. We see the fireworks. We see the flag. We see the parade. We the military." Students who are writing independently can use the 4 square format to write stories similar to: "We love the USA. We see the fireworks. They are above the city. We see the flag is it red, white, and blue. We see the parade. We like the band. We see the military. My dad is in the Navy. We love the USA."

This word card can be put in a writing center. Students can use the word cards to write about the USA. They can also use the words to sort words by syllables or sort by person, place or thing. Students can also use the words for an alphabetical order activity.

This is a set of Famous Americans.  It would be great for writing biographies, non-fiction text, sorting, creating a timeline, or other activities.  I’m sure you can get creative.  There are 16 Famous American cards.
