Day? This year, turn the holiday into a fun and educational experience for

> The Cat in the Hat looks at how we vote, why we vote, and who we
vote for in a rhyming book that’s perfect for President’s Day
reading! In a simple rhyme, the Cat in the Hat introduces early
readers to the concept and practice of voting—with a focus on the
American presidency! Learn the basic principles of democracy and the
formation of political parties. We will also learn about Election Day
and what your vote means to America.
* Holiday History (3:30pm): If I Were President > During this activity,
young guests will learn about some of the presidents of our past and
about the office of president and the job duties of the president.
Children will then discuss what they would do if they were elected
president and make their own campaign poster to support that promise.
* Patriotic Parade (4:50pm): Today we will have a special patriotic
parade.

Grown-up Tip http://pretendcity.org/g2g/calendar-of-events/ : Give your
child a chance to practice their voting skills at home by providing them 2
choices of what to wear for the day, have for a school snack, or what to
eat for dinner. The key to this is to only provide them a choice between 2
or 3 different options. Children feel empowered when they are given a
choice. This is even if you are the one who determines what items they are
choosing between.
