Presidential Predicates and Their Loyal Subjects!

Don't you just LOVE the play on words!?!  Only another teacher can appreciate that corny expression :)  I plan on using this as a file folder activity.  There are two mats: one for George Washington and the other for Abraham Lincoln.  Print these on card stock and laminate them for durability.
Next, there are cards with predicates on them.  These are facts about each of the presidents.  Cut and laminate these as well.  Make sure you shuffle them well.  Then students will select a card and read the predicate to decide which president is the subject.  This is a great time to review verbs of being as well.  I plan on using this as a closure after our read alouds about the presidents and other activities.  I hope you can utilize this in your classroom :)  Stop by and let me know if you use it...I'd love to hear from you!
