Following the campaign process, it was time to set the stage for the big moment: the election speeches. Nervous feelings filled their stomachs as they waited anxiously for their turn to arrive that would carry them to the front of the classroom ready to deliver their speech. They hid their true feelings very well as they spoke with clear and confident voices sharing how they would be the best candidate for classroom president. It has all been exciting and fun! The results of this campaign, you ask? The vote has been taken and counted. The president of Miss Coon's class 2015 is Michaela. Her vice president is Emma. Congratulations to those hired for office and fantastic job to all third graders! Everyone worked very hard!
Yesterday and today we held an election in our classroom for a student president to lead our meetings. The students have worked hard writing convincing speeches to persuade their peers why they are the best candidate for the job. They began the campaign process and created posters that caught their friends attention. The marched around the classroom walking around telling people to vote for them! Check out the video to the left of their campaign in action. From convincing their friends through lofty promises to even bringing in cupcakes to focus their attention on one candidate, these students really know what it means to campaign.
Meet Miss Coon
I love to learn new things! One great place to learn is by spending time in nature and the outdoors! Any opportunity that I can get to take a bike ride, hike, or walk I will gladly do it! I also love music and enjoy playing my flute at church and singing with my sisters. But most of all, I love kids. My passion is to teach children to inquire, and to love learning about this incredible world as I do. My students tend to think I love to learn just because I am a teacher. By modeling the struggle of learning and researching my own interests, I hope my students and others can follow my example and be empowered to seek after their questions to find answers in the midst of the struggle.
