Description

Thanks so much for your interest in my product!

This packet includes printable voter registration cards; ballots with 2, 3, or 4 options; voter response questionnaires; and 'If I were president...' worksheets.

I wanted to celebrate the importance of being a voter at election time with my kiddos, but was having trouble fitting it into a first grade classroom and first grade terminology.

In order to make it a good fit for first grade brains, we discussed the actual election, but then decided to have our own mock election using characters from books. We discussed traits of good leaders and we read Duck for President, Grace for President, and My Teacher for President throughout the week. At the end of the week, we held an election where kiddos got to make their own voter registration cards and vote for their ideal presidential candidate (Duck, Grace, or their teacher). They LOVED taking part in voting!

I hope this works as well in your classroom as it has in mine!

Thank you again!
