Today was election day!...well, in our classroom anyway! The last few days, we have read the books Clifford for President, Duck for President, and My Teacher for President! Then we created a chart describing why each character would make a good president. We made Voter I.D. cards on Monday & it was the job of the students to keep them safe until election day. Today they voted for president on their ballots and had to show me their Voter I.D. card before putting their ballot card in the box.
Then, we tallied and graphed the votes! They loved it. I got the idea from The First Grade Parade and adapted it a bit! Here are some pics!...
...showing her ID so that she can cast her vote!
...they were so excited to vote!
...so many smiles!
...and the results! Sorry Duck & Clifford! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Did you do any voting in your classroom?
