Election Week! Thoughts from SK.

It is a busy week in the U.S.A!  We have elections coming up and  we have enjoyed learning about it in SK. Here are some thoughts from our week.

This is what we want to know about the President.
Palmer - Why isn't the government in charge over the President?
Charlie - Why is there a President in the world?
Alex - Why does the President have to be from America? 
James - Why do we vote for the President? 
Wills -  Why does the President always live in Washington D.C.?
Wilkes - Why do you have to be 35 to be President?

If I were President...
Thomas - Buy lots of toys
West - Give toys to other people when they don't have them
Jackson - Make schools better
Jude - Make friendly robots that try to block the bad guys when they get out of jail
George - Help the poor

Today we read Duck for President in class.  We would like you to read it to your class and your friends! Here are some great thoughts from the story.
Houston - Duck liked to grind coffee beans. I would like to do that!
Marcus - I liked when Duck was President because he didn't really know how to do it. 
Cabell - I liked when he was riding in the parade.
Hyde - I liked it because it was funny.

Why do YOU go to school?

We are brainstorming again today in SK. Our new idea is to ask you why you go to school. Here is why we go to school!
Houston - To learn number and states
Wills - So we can get jobs when we grow up
Jude - I want to learn everything about presidents and all jobs
Palmer - To learn math and to read
Charlie - To exercise and eat healthy foods
Matthew - So we can learn sight words
George - To read chapter books
James - To have our teacher read Willy Wonka
Tucker - to learn the Pledge of Allegiance
Chrishton - to learn about what they have in different states
Jackson - So we can learn

To our readers - Tell us why you go to school at cperry@pdsmemphis.org

Wills wants to know how to say school in many languages. Please share with us if you speak a language other than English.

Back to the Blogging World!

After a year break from my SK blog and a wonderful maternity leave I am back to blog! One of the main things I will be sharing this school year are my class "webisodes". We will be posting videos on this sight throughout the year that share what we are doing and ask questions for our viewers. We are looking forward to sharing with the world and hearing from SK classes from around the globe. 
Glad to be back!
