Learning About Elections
Mrs. Lasseter’s K-2 students are learning about elections. They are practicing their lessons as they vote for their favorite Florida Reading Association picture book. During the year, they heard eight specially selected picture books. This week, they are voting in the state election for the Children’s Book Award, helping choose the winning book! As part of their lesson, they discussed how to vote and watched a short video about elections. For the election, they each receive a ballot with the eight “candidates” on it. They then choose their favorite story, and deposit their ballot it in the ballot box.
