This week we’re reading one of my favorite Abraham Lincoln read-aloud called Just Like Abraham Lincoln by Bernard Waber. It is a well-woven story about ordinary people who find themselves brought together by a common interest. It describes some of Lincoln’s good qualities and what he may have been like. The book is a great introduction to the history and unlikely friendships.

For our snack, I thought it only fitting that the students get to make their very own log cabin!
A handful of pretzel sticks – that’s it!
There is no right or wrong way to put the log cabin together. Let the students be creative in making their cabins!
While the students are eating their snack, I made a printable for them to work on. In the Abraham Lincocln read-aloud., Mr. Pott’s is compared to Abraham Lincoln. On the printable, the students will list three different ways they are alike.

As we’re continuing to learn about Abraham Lincoln this week, we’re also be making our very own Lincoln log cabin craft. Such a fun way to get the students excited about learning!
I hope your students enjoy this Abraham Lincoln read-aloud and making their log cabins!
See you next time!
