Presidents’ Day Song Contest!
This year, the 15th of February is Presidents’ Day. Many families spend time
memorizing the presidents’ names in order at some point in their homeschooling
journey, and most use some type of mnemonic, poem, or song, to do so. Sadly,
some of the “presidents songs” out there are irritatingly kitschy. So what is
there to do but write you own? This month, we want to see (or hear) your
family’s original song or poem about the presidents! It can include names,
dates, important events, or whatever else it takes to be memorable and
informative. The winner gets a $50 gift certificate, and their song may even be
professionally recorded by a homeschool alum in the music industry! Keep it
pithy, be clever, and show us your stuff! Contest ends February 28, 2010.
