Today we read Marc Brown's Arthur Meets the President. In the story Arthur has to write an essay on "How I Can Help Make America Great". I asked the kids the same question. Here are their answers:
Tracker~ I would make the whole world laugh.
Me~How would you do that?
Tracker~I would make sure that every show was funny.
Squirrel~I would help the animals.
Dragon~I would ban litter.
Me~How would that help?
Dragon~No animals would eat aluminum cans. Sea turtles wouldn't get caught up in plastic bags. It would help the environment. I would make the world a healthier place.
Sounds good to me!
