knowing it is my job to create a safe environment for children, sometimes the most i do is ask questions.
what do you know about the american flag?
it means nebraksa
it means obama
it’s for a state
it means restaurants
it’s for basketball and football
it can have sticks
the president waves it
what do you know about election day?
you get stickers
my grandma does it a lot
voting is for seeing how many times you’ve been boating
my mom and dad will vote for k-state, not obama or romney
my mom voted at ohio state
what do you know about barack obama?
my dad and i know him
he’s the president
my mommy and daddy are voting for him
he’s on my tv talking
what do you know about mitt romney?
he tells obama what he can do
his name is really “mint”
he talks a lot
what do you think the president does?
he holds the flag in a parade when in a car on a trip and talks all the time.
and then we entered this exchange:
mitt romney always says NO
no! obama always says NO
no! obama says YES
no, mitt romney says YES
mitt romney says NO–my mommy says that all the time!
barack obama says NO
…in the end we reached consensus that in fact each candidate has been heard saying YES and NO.
we also heard about one candidate being on their toilet paper at home, but the assumption was that it was because they liked him so much. we went with that concept.
and finally: what do you think the president should do?
play and draw and come to our school.
