we the people

Today is a pretty big deal. So we made it an even bigger deal in our classroom! We talked about voting, what it means to vote, and why we vote for our president. I could see all of my kids getting dreamy-eyed about the day they turn 18 and get the right to vote for such an important office.

We read Duck for President and even had our own mini election. We just finished reading Jennifer Murdley’s Toad during our oral reading time as a class and so I put the next book up to a vote…

Matilda won by a landslide.

Well, I’m off to go enjoy a date with a bearded man and watch the votes roll in later!
