Here’s how it went down ya’ll….
There was a discussion about Presidents Day. When I asked them to tell me about the first president they said it was Washington. Then I said what do you know about Washington…They said he was black and that he lied about a cherry tree….and that “Obama was wrecking this town”.
So I quickly turned the mood with a question…. Why Would You Be A Good President? (Thanks Cara!)
Most stated that there should be more recess, time off, and even weeks off. One said we should take holidays off because that is why they are called holidays. (Couldn’t have said it better in my opinion) Then we had the preventative thinkers that wanted to stop bullying, bad guys, robbers, stealers, and littering. Here’s an example of the writing that went with the craft. (the craft is from my unit and the writing paper is from Cara’s unit)
Next we made ourselves into presidents.
