For Presidents' Day I found some of the cutest You Tube videos to use this month as a quick brain break, a chance to learn a little song and have a little fun while you also worry about Test Prep and all those other good things!

I've loved Math my entire life, which is why I make more Math resources compared to other subjects. If you are pushed for time, I have two Money resources that you can use while incorporating Presidents' Day into your Math lesson by talking about some of the presidents on coins and dollar bills.
