Decisions, decisions. Some are certainly easier to make than others, as many people are discovering on this 2016 Election Day in the United States…
Kid President just released a timely video for the occasion. Happily, it doesn’t just apply to election decisions. In fact, my 2nd graders have been discussing “Thinking Hats,” and “Making Tough Choices with Kid President,” was the perfect supplement to a lesson on the importance of thinking about your thinking. “Be thoughtful,” Kid President advises, after warning against impulsivity, doing nothing, and following along with everyone else. Pretty sage advice from someone who isn’t even old enough to vote yet.
I will be adding this video to my “Inspirational Videos for Students” collection. Here is a free printable of my Thanksgiving Thinking Hats Review if you are interested!
