What would you do if you were president?

Children shouldn't have to deal with actual politics, especially since these days politics can be far too hurtful and controversial! I think it's best to go in a different direction with kids.
 
What would you do if you were president? I asked my students this question, and their responses were absolutely delightful!
 
 
This year, on election day, 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!
