A true democracy requires citizens to actively engage and participate in the voting process.
Without this, our democracy suffers. Did you know that less than 50 years ago, all women and
African-American men were not allowed to vote? It wasn’t until the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that
racial discrimination in voting was outlawed in the United States. This landmark piece of federal
legislation put in place laws to protect your rights as a voter. In reflecting and learning that it was
less than 50 years ago that rights of America’s citizens were being violated, reminds me of the
importance to participate in civic engagement. I am also reminded that it is important to teach our
children about the history of voting, and what it means to vote in America. Every election year they
are surrounded by information and activities regarding voting, but may not understand what it all
means. To help you in your effort to assist children in understanding what civic engagement means,
we’ve included an article and resources you can use in your program or classroom to get children
involved and to gain a better understanding of what it means to vote this election year. We hope
you will consider implementing some of these ideas into your day-to-day work with children.
On behalf of CCR&R, we also wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
Sincerely,
Michelle
Una verdadera democracia requiere que los ciudadanos participen activamente en el
proceso de votación. Sin esto, nuestra democracia sufre. ¿Sabía que hace menos de 50 años, todas
las mujeres y los hombres negros no podían votar? No fue hasta la Ley de Derecho de Voto de 1965
que era ilegal la discriminación racial en la votación de Estados Unidos. Esta pieza histórica de
la legislación federal puso en lugar leyes para proteger los derechos como votante. Al reflexionar
y aprender que era hace menos de 50 años que se violaban los derechos de los ciudadanos de
Estados Unidos, me recuerda la importancia de participar en este compromiso cívico. También
recuerdo que es importante enseñar a nuestros hijos sobre la historia de la votación, y lo que
significa votar en Estados Unidos. Cada año electoral están rodeados de información y actividades
con respecto a la votación, pero tal vez no entienden lo que significa todo. Para ayudarle en su
esfuerzo en ayudar a los niños comprender lo que significa la participación cívica, hemos incluido
un artículo y recursos que puede utilizar en su programa o salón para involucrar a los niños y para
obtener una mejor comprensión de lo que significa votar este año de elecciones. Esperamos que
usted considere implementar algunas de estas ideas en su trabajo cotidiano con los niños.
De parte de CCR&R, también le deseamos unas seguras y felices fiestas!
Sinceramente,
Michelle

The Early Childhood Bulletin
Engage Your Kids in the
Election
by Grace Gardner from www.parents.com
History is always in the making. Important events that kids will read about one day are
happening now. We offered some tips for raising good citizens, and this election season is the
perfect time to get the kids excited about civics.
We spoke with Michael J. Berson, Ph.D., professor of social science education at the
University of South Florida, about ways to engage children during this exciting time in history.
1. Hold a mock vote
The Electoral College can be difficult even for adults to understand and kids may not be able
to grasp the concept of the popular vote. A better way to familiarize kids with the notion of
voting is by holding a mock election.
“Kids can vote on small things, like what to have for lunch that day,” says Dr. Berson. “The
idea is to show them the power of choice, which they will carry with them later in life.”
But what happens when one child outvotes the other’s choice of mac ‘n’ cheese for lunch?
Show the child how to “campaign” for her favorite meal the next night! This will not only
teach her how to react when she don’t get her way, but will also help her understand how to
enact positive change for an issue she cares about.
2. Read to your kids about elections
“One of the best ways to teach your children about the political process is by reading to them,”
says Dr. Berson. “Read biographies of former presidents and don’t forget to read about first
ladies as well.”
Here are some of our favorites:
Ages 4–8:
Woodrow for President: A Tail of Voting Campaigns and Elections by Peter and Cheryl
Barnes
So You Want to be President? by Judith St. George
Ages 9 and up:
Lincoln: A Photobiography by Russell Freedman
First Ladies (DK Eyewitness Book) by Amy Pastan
3. Avoid negative TV ads
We often leave the TV commercials on in the background without thinking about them, but
negative political ads could send the wrong message to kids. “It’s important for children to
have visuals of the candidates,” says Dr. Berson. “Try muting the TV when negative ads come
on and use the visuals to explain in positive terms who the candidate is and what issue the ad
is talking about.”
4. Attend political events as a group
This is a great way for kids to participate in an election, but not all political events are
appropriate for children. “Younger children may be frightened by hecklers or negative
protestors at speeches and rallies,” says Dr. Berson. “A more developmentally-appropriate
option would be to attend a parade that a candidate is in.”

5. Show your patriotism
It may not be appropriate to dress children in t-shirts or stickers that promote a candidate; they
are too young to fully understand. Dr. Berson says that a better option is to give your child a
flag to wave if you are attending a political event.
6. Keep it positive
Dr. Berson says that it’s good to show children your sense of connection to a particular party
or candidate. However, you should always speak respectfully of opposing parties. Teaching
children to respect both sides is a great lesson that will carry over into other relationships in
their life.
7. Discuss platforms, not parties
Encourage children to create their own opinions by talking to them about different sides of
issues as opposed to talking about the different parties.
8. Relate the election to your home and community
The best way for kids to understand politics on a national scale is by showing them ways to
actively get involved in their home or community. You can start by letting kids think of ways
to improve the area around them by working on community service projects that they are
passionate about. Sites like Volunteer Match, Do Something and The Volunteer Family offer
great ways to learn about kid-friendly service opportunities in your community.

that show up."

The Early Childhood Bulletin
Interese a sus Niños con la
Elección
por Grace Gardner de www.parents.com
Historia siempre se esta creando. Eventos importantes que niños leerán algún día están
sucediendo ahora. Ofrecimos algunos consejos de como criar buenos ciudadanos y en esta
temporada electoral es el tiempo perfecto para emocionar a los niños sobre cívicas.
Hablamos con Micheal J. Berson, Ph.D., profesor de educación de ciencias sociales en la
Universidad de Florida del Sur, sobre maneras de como involucrar a niños durante este
emocionante tiempo histórico.
1. Simule una votación
El Colegio Electoral es difícil de entender hasta para que adultos lo entiendan y niños no
podrán comprender el concepto del voto popular. Una mejor manera de familiarizar a los
niños con la noción del voto es teniendo una elección simulada.
“Niños pueden votar por cosas pequeñas, como que van a almorzar ese día”, dice el Dr.
Berson. “La idea es de enseñarles el poder de la selección, el cual llevaran con ellos más tarde
en la vida.”
¿Pero que pasa cuando un niño supera la selección de macarrón con queso para el almuerzo?
Enseñele al niño como “hacer campaña” al siguiente día por su comida preferida. Esto no
solo le enseñara como reaccionar cuando no consigue lo que quiere, pero también le ayudara a
entender como promulgar un cambio positivo por los asuntos que le interesan.
2. Léale a sus niños sobre las elecciones
“Una de las mejores maneras de enseñarle a sus niños sobre el proceso politico es leyéndoles,”
dice el Dr. Berson. Lea biografías de presidentes pasados y no se le olvide de leer también
sobre las primeras damas.”
Aquí están algunos de nuestros favoritos:
Edades 4–8:
Woodrow for President: A Tail of Voting Campaigns and Elections por Peter y Cheryl Barnes
So You Want to be President? por Judith St. George
Edades 9 y más:
Lincoln: A Photobiography por Russell Freedman
First Ladies (DK Eyewitness Book) por Amy Pastan
3. Evite anuncios televisados negativos
Es seguido cuando dejamos prendidos los comerciales de television en el fondo sin pensar
en ellos, pero anuncios politicos negativos podrán mandar el mensaje equivocado a niños.
“Es importante que los niños tengan una visual de los candidatos,” dice el Dr. Berson. “Trate
de poner la television en silencio cuando vengan los anuncios negativos y trate de usar los
visuales para explicar en términos positivos quien es el candidato y cual es el asunto del cual
esta hablando el anuncio.”

4. Atienda eventos politicos en grupo
Esta es una gran manera en que niños puedan participar en la elección, pero no todos los
eventos politicos son apropiados para niños. “Ninos pequeños se pueden asustar con objetantes
or manifestadores negativos en discursos o demostraciones, “ dice el Dr. Berson. “Una mejor
opción desarrolladamente apropiada seria atender un desfile en donde aparece el candidato
politico.”
5. Demuestre su patriotismo
No podría ser apropiado vestir a los niños en camisetas o con calcomanías que promocionan
a un candidato; son muy pequeños para entender completamente. Dr. Berson dice que una
mejor opción seria darle una bandera para que el niño mueva si atenderá un evento politico.
6. Manténgalo positivo
Dr. Berson dice que es bueno ensebarle a los niños su sentido de conexión hacia un partido o
candidato particular. Sin embargo, siempre debe de hablar respetuosamente sobre los partidos
opuestos. Enseñándole a los niños que respeten ambos lados es una gran lección que llevaran
con ellos a través de otras relaciones en sus vidas.
7. Discuta plataformas, no partidos
Anime a los niños que formen sus propias opiniones hablando con ellos sobre los diferentes
lados de temas en vez de hablarles sobre los diferentes partidos.
8. Relacione la elección con su hogar o comunidad
La mejor manera que niños entiendan la política a una escala nacional es enseñándoles las
diferentes maneras de involucrarse en el hogar y en la comunidad. Podría empezar dejando
a los niños que piensen en maneras de como mejorar el area alrededor de ellos trabajando
en projectos de servicio comunitarios que los apasiona. Sitios como Volunteer Match,
Do Something y The Volunteer Family ofrecen grandes maneras de como aprender sobre
oportunidades serviciales para niños en su comunidad.
"Cada elección es determinada por la gente
que se presenta."

Career Ready Standards in kindergarten. Highlights include the reframing of our work as well as outlining the major educational
shifts that will support the evolution of a child’s thinking.

Approaches to Learning are defined as, “Observable behaviors that indicate ways children become engaged in social interactions
and learning experiences.” In this six-hour interactive session, participants will uncover the layers of the Approaches to Learning
Standard and explore the connections to executive functions of the brain.
Let’s Talk: Engaging Children in Conversations
Engaging children in conversations fosters cognitive, language, and social development for children.

So, understanding that having extended conversations with children supports their cognitive development and increases positive
interactions, the objective of this workshop is to:
1. To learn the key elements of meaningful conversations with young children
2. To identify the benefits of teachers engaging in conversations with young children
3. To understand strategies teachers can use to engage children in conversations
4. To identify opportunities in the classroom to have conversations with children
