Teaching about American symbols can be lots of fun and students learn about important pieces of our history! These lesson ideas and resources are perfect for engaging students in the study of American symbols.
Chit Chat Messages: American Symbols
Chit chat messages are perfect for shared reading and interactive writing. This is an excellent way to bring informational close reading into your classroom!
I always loved writing out the chit chat message on chart paper and providing students the opportunity to help fill in the missing words. They think it is SO cool when they can use your special markers to write on the anchor chart. You can also display a colored version on your interactive whiteboard.
There also printable versions in color or black and white! So, have students complete their very own.
More writing response activities and journal prompts are also included within the unit. Find it here:
