Don't Forget Your Local Elections!
The Poetry Friday Anthology for Celebrations contains 156 poems (in both English & Spanish) about holidays and unusual celebrations; Election Day is one of them. Here's a poem from that book, "Voting" by Diane Mayr. I hope you'll share it along with this "Take 5" mini-lesson by Sylvia Vardell.
Get kids talking about politics by getting poetic! Pretend to be a dog who wants access to public swimming pools, or a tree who would like to see more pro-tree policies. Then look at your local ballot and talk about what's on it!
