Voting and Elections Glossary Cards

Voting, Elections, Glossary Cards, Ballot, Democrat, Republican, Dictionary Cards,
I created these illustrated U.S.A Election Glossary Cards which explain the meanings of more than seventy of the most common U.S.A election words and terms. They can be used at any election season because the clip art used do not relate specifically to any persons who are currently in the run for office this year, yet they still effectively convey the meanings of the terms. This set includes seventy-one cards, which have the colors red, white and blue in keeping with a U.S. patriotic theme. They can be used as flash cards and also for differentiated learning centers. I selected terms that range from familiar to complex so each student can be given a specific set of cards that suits his/her own reading level. Instructions for suggested games that your students can play with these cards are included with the set. This cards are ideal for students in Grade 3, Grade 4, and Grade 5. It is available at here at TeacherspayTeachers can you can click on the orange 'Download Preview' button to check out the free sample!

Some of the U.S.A election words and terms featured are:
Easy - Election, Ballot, Democrat, Republican, Election,  Bipartisan, Campaign, Candidate, Caucus, 
Hard - Bipartisan, Campaign, Candidate, Caucus, Electoral College and Front Runner.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
