Election Day: The First Grade Way!

I plan on having some fun election activities on Monday for the kiddos!  Students do not have school on Tuesday so hopefully we can get in some great lessons!
Scholastic Book Club is one of my favorite resources. (I probably should have stock in the company!)
Last week, I placed an online order and I had my books within just a few short days.  Take a peek at my great buys!

The Ballot Box and Stickers are from Scholastic.  The stove hat is from Really Good Stuff.  The yellow voting forms are copied from this month's Weekly Readers.

Bought this last year.  Great Election Kit for Grades 1 through 3

With last month's purchases, I received this coupon for FREE ELECTION Kit that is NEW this year.

Voting Stickers and Nomination Forms.

Great anchor text for the students narrative writing piece: 
"If I Were President"

Here's our fantastic Weekly Reader!

Freebie From Scholastic

Another Freebie from Scholastic

Pinterest has a "Hats Off to our Presidents" door display.  I think I may use these old campaign hats just for that purpose!

I have saved a copy of my Elections Week agenda on Google Docs so please click here if you are interested!  My pinterest board "Election Day" also has many great ideas and sites posted!

Happy Voting,
