Election Printables

Election Word Wall

Election Printables: This is a growing collection of classroom printables for U.S.A. elections. I am really excited about these. These election printables are really for any election year and will be updated for each election season. Clicking on any of the pictures will take you to each printable listed at my teachers pay teachers collection. I hope to add more to this soon.

On the left picture below is an illustrated word wall of 36 U.S. election words and terms. Each word card has a matching picture to depict the word’s meaning.  The election terms in this set are: election, vote, president, vice president, Republican, Democrat, amendment, blue collar, white collar, ballot, absentee ballot, bill, constitution, candidate, caucus, bipartisan, campaign, primary, delegate, debate, democracy, front runner, incumbent, independent, majority, political party, politician, negative ads, poll, suffrage, media, term limits, town meeting, funding, swing voter, and fund raising. It can be used as headers for doing ‘word of the day’ focus walls or it can be used as a stand alone word wall.

On the right above is the 'I Have Who Has' Game for Election Terms. These are illustrated game cards for reviewing the meanings of the most common U.S. election words and terms. Students can play in groups of three or more. Each of the election term cards has a picture next to it for visual learners to connect the terms to real life and to make sense of new and unfamiliar words.

Finally, below are election glossary cards that I made. They are a set of flash cards which each feature an election word or term, its definition, and a matching picture.

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!
