Presidents Name Tally

Have your students tally the names of U.S. Presidents by first letter of the first name, and then do the same thing for the first letter of the last name. This will make the names more familiar to them and prepare them for the U.S. Presidents worksheet, where they match the faces of the presidents to their names. Click here to download it.
