The Presidential Election will be here before we know it. Since this is a very important event for the United States that only happens every four years, it is important to discuss and educate even the littlest of learners. I always love combining social studies with literacy so I created an Election Day Emergent Reader and Ballot activity. Are you looking for more election ideas, activities, and printables to do at home or in the classroom? If so click here.
The Election Day Emergent Reader contains eight different pages to help teach students about election day. It walks students through a very basic introduction to the presidential election. Each page contains one to two sentences and then has an image above it. For many of these students, they will have no knowledge of presidential elections so a visual will be very important in helping students understand exactly what they are reading.
There is a color and black and white version for students included in this freebie. If you choose to do black and white, you can have your students color their Election Day Emergent Reader prior to reading. I always find this helps introduce students to the material, while also providing them with some ownership over their own book.
If you use the Election Day Emergent Reader in the classroom while you are learning about elections, you can send it home with your students to add to their book collection at home. If you do not have time to complete in your classroom, you can simply send the book home and have students complete it at home.
Purchase our Mock Election to help teach your students all about the election.
