This Sunday we'll start our next topic: Voting and Advocacy! With state & local elections coming up, it's a great time to talk about why voting matters and how we can advocate for ourselves and others.
We'll meet at Green Hedges and start off in the main room with the platform. I'm reading the book this week, and right after that we'll move to the classroom. Parents are welcome to join in, or stay and listen to the platform.
This week, the students will be working on a campaign of their own -- to decide what snack I bring to our next class (on 10/15)! They'll practice their influencing skills by making signs and, at Josie's request, speeches.
I can't wait for Sunday! I'm so excited to see where the kids take this activity.
