So You Want to Be President? by Judith St. George, illustrated by David Small - 2001 Caldecott Medal Winner

Persuasive writing.  The student explains why he or she should be elected for president.  Great activity to celebrate President's Day.

While Alexandra, first grade teacher and creator of The First Grade Sweet Life, originally used this activity as part of her President's Day lessons, we think this would work great as part of an Election/Government Unit too!
