|The campaign buttons my assistant and I will wear tomorrow.|
Today I told my class that they were going to chose one of the toys that would be in our classroom for the next month. My assistant campaigned for Lego. She explained that a vote for Lego meant that they would also get some new Lego. I campaigned for the Sand Table and asked the constituents what they would want to dig for in the sandbox. Suggestions included dogs and cats and jewels. I promised that if they picked the Sand Table it would have toy dogs and cats and jewels (not sure I'll be able to keep that campaign promise because I only found little dogs and jewels among our toy and craft collections:).
During free play, many of the children chose to make posters and buttons for their preferred toy. There were also chants of "Lego, Lego, Lego" and "Sand Table, Sand Table." The kids are really excited about the election!

Early polling seems to suggest that we are going to have Lego in our class next month :)
