What would you do if you were president?

What would you do if you were president? I asked my students this question, and their responses were absolutely delightful!

Since I really didn't want to deal with the REAL presidential election this week, (Far too controversial! I want to stay neutral!) I decided to go in a different direction.

First of all, we voted for our favorite Indoor Recess Game. Sorry won, with Battleship a close second. We graphed our votes, and drew some conclusions from the data.

A couple of days later, we had a fabulous discussion.

I asked them what they would do if they were President of the United States.  Their answers were amazing!

Here are some of my favorites:

I would get rid of smoking.

I would expect people to try to get along.

I would get rid of drugs.

I would make sure people stopped hurting each other.

I would have people smile more.

I would let people wear their hair however they want.

I would have the rich people use their extra money to help the poor people.

I would get rid of junk food.

I would make everyone read.

I would make sure people are healthy.

I would make people exercise.

I would get rid of bullies.

Honestly, I was inspired and proud! I half expected "typical" kid answers: no homework, no bedtimes, more video games... but they didn't go in that direction at all! 

They've got my vote!
