Election Day

We discussed how today, Tuesday, November 8 is an important day for our country.  Many children shared that their parents already voted!  Last week we read a wonderful picture book, POTUS.

We will not spoil the story, but feel free to ask your child about the story since it's a wonderful story.  Today, we read Duck for President.
After we read the story, each child cast a ballot for either the duck or the farmer.  We talked a lot about some of the rules around voting: how one person casts one vote (to keep things fair), how votes can be private (so we don't put our names on our ballots) and how we usually vote for one person when voting for our leaders (which is sometimes a tough choice, as with the duck and the farmer).

Duck won the majority in our classroom election.  It will be interesting to see what the rest of our real election looks like.  Have a peaceful Election Night!
