I won't post pictures because I don't really have their permission to, but their drawings were SPOT. ON.. Here are some of the responses I received:
Note: I corrected 1st grade spelling because I speak fluent 6 year oldese but you might not.
"I like Trump because that's a cool name."
"I like Hillary because she's better than Trump."
"Hillary because my mom loves her."
"That Donald guy is rude."
"Donald Trump will keep us safe."
"Hilary won't put walls around us."
"I pick Donald Trump because he is not a Democrat." (This student spelled "democrat" correctly, too. Dang)
"I pick Hillary because she's a girl and we need a girl president." (got this response three times)
"I will pick Donald Trump because Hillary says she will kill babies."
"I want Hillary because Trump will build big walls."
"I pick Hillary Clinton because she is nice.Donald Trump is mean."
These little ears listen. Their eyes watch. And their mouths speak what they hear. Their hearts and minds take it all in and they wrestle with it and try and make sense of it all just like us grown ups do. Let's make them proud.
