Hooray for Election Day!

The 2016 Election is fast approaching!  If you're looking for some engaging activities to use in your classroom this year then be sure to check out my Hooray for Election Day packet!  Here's a sneak peek at some of the goodies that are included:

Students  can fill out their own voter registration card prior to participating in the class election!

Students can vote for the actual candidates or your class could choose to hold an election between Duck For President and the Teacher for President.  Official ballots are included for both!

Tally the Votes is a fun game to work on comparing two numbers!  Students turn over a card for each candidate and then color each ten frame to match.  The person whose candidate has the most votes keeps both cards.  The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.

Practice a little presidential problem-solving with this activity!  Students read the scenario, use the cards to represent the problem, and then write an equation to match.  

Practice number recognition and subitizing with this fun Roll and Cover game!

Use this Spin-a-Graph to practice student's data collection and graphing skills!  Students spin the spinner shown above.  They then place a card on their ten frame of the picture the spinner landed on (shown below).  Using the ten frame helps student keep track of their spins.  This way they are sure to only spin 10 times as stated in the directions.

Students will then transfer the data from their ten frame to their tally marks section and use that data to create a graph (shown below).

This is just a small glimpse of what's included in this packet!  Click the images below to check out the previews and product description in my store!
