Election day was a lot of fun today. We read Duck for President to learn about the voting process. Then just like Duck we made mini campaign posters and paraded around the classroom trying to gain more votes. We voted on our favorite way to eat corn. Everyone got a chance to go to the ballot box and cast their vote. Then we counted the votes and announced our winner . . . caramel corn!

With the Summer Olympics going on my school is doing a "Go for the Gold" theme this school year. I plan to have this out for morning work on the first day of school. Click the picture to grab your free copy.
In May we learned all about famous Olympic athletes and started writing biographies.
We compared the Summer Olympics to the Winter Olympics using a Venn diagram.
We brainstormed words that describe Olympians and made list poems. They illustrated with their favorite Olympic sport.
My Olympic unit has been updated for the Rio Summer Olympics. Check it out on TPT.
