Election Time!

My kiddos are taking their district math benchmark Monday and reading benchmark Tuesday.  They're going to be pretty brain dead after that.  I also won't have that much time left with them.  I'm thinking Tuesday we'll do some election stations.  I'm thinking three stations, 20 minutes or so each.  Fun and educational, right?  We've been learning about the election in Social Studies, and this will be a great way to wrap it up.

1.  Independent read or buddy read election themed books like:
Arthur Meets the President
Duck for President
My Teacher for President
President Citizen
Grace for President
What Presidents are Made of
So You Want to Be President?

2.  Word Work
Make as many words as possible from Presidental Election and Voter Registration.

3.  Voter Registration Form and Card
Students will complete the following and then go online to "vote".  My district has its own online voting site, but you can use Scholastic's.

  1. Hey Megan I was hoping you can help me. I followed your tutorial for my signature (and followed similar steps for my sidebar labels) I saved them as pngs with transparent backgrounds but when you look at my blog you can see boxes around them. Do you know how to fix that?

    1. Go into your dashboard, template, customize, add css. Paste in this code:

      .post-body img, .post-body .tr-caption-container, .Profile img, .Image img,
      .BlogList .item-thumbnail img {
      padding: none !important;
      border: none !important;
      background: none !important;
      -moz-box-shadow: 0px 0px 0px transparent !important;
      -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 0px transparent !important;
      box-shadow: 0px 0px 0px transparent !important;

      That should work.
      If it doesn't work, let me know!
