Election Day tomorrow – No School

Hi everyone! I just wanted to remind you all that students do not have school tomorrow. The schools are closed for election day and teachers have some meetings.

Because tomorrow is election day I wanted to introduce the concept to students today so they can start to understand what “voting” means, even in their lives and at their ages! We started by talking about being off of school tomorrow and asked if any of them had heard about “voting” before. Then I read a very child friendly story about voting and how even at their age they may vote about their favorite things, a class pet, etc. We also discussed something very important about voting – sometimes your choice doesn’t “win” and that is okay. The important part is voicing your opinion!

Then I told them that we were going to all get to vote about which cookie was the best – Oreo or Chocolate Chip. Then after voting I would bring the winning cookie as a treat on Wednesday! All of the students got a “Cookie Ballot” and checked which cookie was their favorite and then put it into a ballot box! After everyone voted, each child also received an “I voted” button! We then counted the ballots together to see which cookie won! Oreo won with 10 votes, while Chocolate Chip Cookie received 3 votes. All of the students really enjoyed learning about voting in a child friendly way and are looking forward to having more “elections” in our classroom during the year 🙂 Below are a few pictures from the “Cookie Election” – if you click the picture, it will take you to the larger image.
