    1. This was a great book that would be awesome for an elementary read aloud. The author Kay Winters does an excellent job taking the students through the character traits of a president through writing a letter. The class is writing a letter to channel 39 saying why they think there teacher should be president. The illustrations in the book are very comical because they show the similarities between the president and a teacher. I liked at how the end the student said that if Mrs. Robbins does becom [...]


    2. My Teacher for President is a great read aloud for young students. At this age, students adore their teachers and think the world of them--this book addresses that love students have for their teachers. The whole story is a continuous letter written by a class of students explaining all the reasons their teacher should be President. This book is great when teaching about letter writing, especially persuasive writing. The story mentions a lot of detail so students can connect supporting details a [...]


    3. I definitely admire teachers even more after reading this book. There are so many more roles that a teacher has to take on other than just teaching the students about new things. I would use this book to talk about the different jobs that the president has. Using this book would definitely make the presidents job more relatable to the students. Expanding on the book we could also talk about how the president gains his position through people voting for him. Finally voting would be used to make m [...]


    4. I actually never made a connection of the teacher's responsibilities and job as to those of the president. This is a great book to read aloud to a large group and get the children talking and learning about the president and connecting his jobs to something they are familiar with the teacher. You can discuss the jobs and responsibilities of the president and compare them to the teacher. As a class, we could write a letter to the press stating why the teacher would make a great president.


    5. With a focus on the character and management traits needed for success as a president, this is an effective way to move beyond politics and labels and examine qualities of a candidate- and funny, too!


    6. I would use this book to make a connection the the Presidential race that takes place in 2016. Just like in this book, we would have a lesson on the duties and responsibilities of the President. We could then talk about who they think would be a great President.


    7. This picture books by Kay Winters is a great way to teach young children what a president is suppose to do and also see what their teachers do for them. The story is a letter to Channel 39 explaining why he (Oliver) believes that his teacher would make a great president. He explains how she goes to meetings, cares about the environment, listens to other and cares about health just to name a few. The writing and illustration work so well together. On one side you can see what the teacher does and [...]




    8. SummaryThis book is about a student in a classroom that is learning about the upcoming election in America and thinks that his teacher would be the perfect candidate. He writes a letter to Channel 39 describing why he thinks his teacher would be the best president. In the end of the story he finishes with a sentence that says that if his teacher wins he doesn’t want her to go anywhere until the end of the year.ResponseMy favorite quote in the book is “Love, Oliver P.S. Just make sure she doe [...]


    9. My Teacher for President is about a young boy named Oliver who is a second grade student learning about president. When he realizes that his teacher shares a lot of qualities that he is learning about he gets this great idea that his teacher should be the president of the United States. The illustrations promote comedy in the book, and show the difference between what his teacher does verses what the president does.This is a heartwarming book that shows how important of a role model a teacher ca [...]


    10. My Teacher For President by Kay Winters was published by Puffin Book in 2008. It has 32 pages and I rated this a 5/5 because I felt that all students feel that their teacher could be a president for what they do for their class. The genre of this book is Fiction, the Lexile Level is 370L and the Guided reading level is a J. This book can be used for grade Pre-K-1st. The summary of this book is that a student from Mrs. Robbins class would be voted highly for president. The student saw on Channel [...]


    11. A class is learning about the presidential election and writes a letter to channel 39 letting them know that his teacher would make a great president. Over the next couple of pages he list off traits and characteristics that both a president and teacher share such as: teachers are always signing important papers just like presidents, both teachers and presidents go to lots of meetings, and just like the president his teacher acts quickly when their is an emergency. One thing that I really like a [...]


    12. It's so sad that the mere fact that I will use this in Storytime can be seen as political. Because decent values, listening to the people, healthcare, and pro-environment is suddenly taking a side. But I'm reading it anyhow, because we should expect this in a President. (and it's cute and age-appropriate)


    13. "My Teacher for President" by Kathy Winters is a wonderful book for introducing the responsiblities of being president to young children. In the book, second grader Oliver is learning about the presidential election in school and decides he should write a letter to the local news station with the reasons way his teacher, Mrs. Robbins, would make a great canidate for president. Some of the reason Oliver includes are that his teacher is a good listener, she likes to go on trips, and she wants to h [...]


    14. 10/28/2016 ** I had the pleasure of sharing this book with 9 classes of K, 1st, & 2nd graders this week. The best part was listening to the students' comments about the illustrations. - realizing that the characters look similar to Junie B. Jones and making the connection that it's the same illustrator. - noticing the snake edging out of the cage in one spread and then watching the teacher try to catch the snake several pages later. - watching the secret service/spies/ bad guys following the [...]


    15. Personal reaction: My favorite part about this book is the illustrations. Denise Brunkus is also the illustrator of the Junie B. Jones series, which was my absolute favorite as a child. The illustrations bring back memories of being a child, not to mention the story is cute.Purposes: Read aloud for children in first grade for enrichment/enjoyment or curricular purposes. Children will better understand the story and get the humor of it if they have a general concept of what the president does. Th [...]


    16. Sierra Birdsall EDUC 535 The book My Teacher for President is a great book for a first or second grade read-a-loud. It is a great way to start a unit about government or the president. I enjoyed how the pictures incorporate the teacher in the classroom setting then in a "president" duty setting. The book relates government on a common level for students. A teacher, someone they see everyday, participating in president task. Great way to have a engagement conversation with the class. I also belie [...]


    17. I really enjoyed reading this book. I absolutely loved how the story captivated teacher's duties and responsibilities and related it to the job of a president. The illustrations drew a nice comparison on how different,yet similar the two jobs can be. It was actually pretty humorous and adorable at the same time, because the little boy in the story wrote down his reasons for why his teacher would make a great president.I would have voted for Mrs. Robbins, haha she seems like an awesome teacher!


    18. Winters, Kay. (2004). My Teacher for President. New York, NY: Penguin Group. Sub Group: Careers Genre: Picture Story Book-Fiction Topics: teachers, school Synopsis: A little boy sees on television that the presidential elections are coming up, and decides to write the TV station a letter. He lets them know that his teacher would be great for president. Throughout the book, he discusses many reasons as to why he feels that his teacher is capable of being president. This book is very humorous, wi [...]


    19. A student explains all the reasons why he thinks his teacher should be the president.I adored this book. The illustrations are so catchy and it reminds me of how I looked up to my teacher when I was younger. I would use this book in a read aloud and I would use the illustrations as discussion points because the illustrations show the teacher actually teaching and then also being a president and the student compares the two and shows how he thinks that both jobs are similar in the tasks that they [...]


    20. Kay Winters does a really good job in correlating the life of a teacher and the duties of a President in this text. This could definitely be used in a Social Studies lesson to help students identify the duties of a President. This clever book is something they'd be able to relate to; it does a good job in showing its readers how relatable our government can be to people we see everyday. Enjoyed the humor of the text and the fact that it is narrated by a kid (another relatable aspect of this text [...]


    21. Oliver writes to the president, telling him why his teacher, Mrs. Robbins, should be president. She does everything that the president does, so she would make a great president. Easy read and fun for the students to think about their teacher as president. At the end, Oliver says, "Just don't take her before the end of the year". I did a lesson with this book for an observation. We read the book and then made a poster with all the reasons why their teacher should be the president. The students ha [...]


    22. This book was full of enthusiasm when one of the students decided that his teacher was the perfect candidate for president. I enjoyed the different lobbying efforts and the logical thinking that took place as the class rooted on their teacher for president. However, I did lose interest pretty quickly so I may not read the entire book to my class at one time. It would be great to hold a mock election and let the children create signs, banners, buttons, slogans, etc. and then vote. Love the ideaul [...]


    23. This book is great! I the opportunity to see it read in a first grade classroom! Afterwards the students made american flags and cut outs that looked just like them to place on the flag. This book is fun for kids and very educational all at the same time. It teaches about the process to become president. It is a great book to read during the election year around november. It is incredibly applicable.


    24. This book is funny! A student writes to a news station about the elections. He is explaining why his teacher would be a great president. On one side of the book is a picture of the teacher doing something from her day and on the other side is a picture of her doing something similar as president. example: Deals with media everyday. one page has teacher playing with the VCR and the other side has the same teacher holding a press conference. : )


    25. I think this is a great book to introduce during election time. It will give students an idea of what the president does. Teachers can also tell their students about the current president and his family, or tell them about former presidents. I added this book to my writing bookshelf because it introduces students to a form of print, a letter. As a classroom activity, teachers can have the students write a letter to someone.


    26. My Teacher for President" by Kay Winters is great book for introducing the responsiblities of being president to young children. In the book, second grader Oliver is learning about the presidential election in school and decides he should write a letter to the local news station with the reasons way his teacher, Mrs. Robbins, would make a great canidate for president. This would be a good book to teach students about the president election.


    27. Love this book .t of all for the title :-)This is a good book to use to teach about letter writing.Great for inspiring persuasive writing: make a statement and provide supporting arguments/proof.Wonderful illustrations.S/S: can use in a lesson about elections/politicsArt: can have students act out a class election (nominate candidate, have candidate give a persuasive speech, state why they vote for a candidate, etc)S/S: community helper jobs (teachers' roles)
