Mock Election in Pre-K



My daughter’s Pre-K class did a mock election on the 5th. The candidates were the Cookie Monster, who promised us a cookie every day and The Count, who said that they could count on him to help them learn, count, & solve problems. It was unanimous – the Cookie Monster was the big winner! They marked their ballots and put them in the ballot box! Then they received a “I voted today” badge.

I thought it was pretty cool! Of course they did not get a cookie today….


Did you children do a mock election in their school?


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!

  9. Very cute! My children’s school held their student body elections on Tuesday, and did not have a mock presidential election. I think that was probably a good idea.
