1st/2nd Grade - Mrs. Vanness
This past week we were doing a continent study of South America. This led to a discussion on leaders of our country, state, city and school. I asked the students if they would like to be principal of Lincoln/Montessori and after hearing some of their answers, I decided it would make a great journal prompt. Below are some excerpts from our journals stating the reasons it would be great to be a principal, and some reasons why it would be…..well……. not so great! Enjoy!!
I would like to be a principal:
Bennelle: I would get rich. I would buy a lamborghini.
Maci: I would like to be a principal just like Mr. Berryman. I could make kids brains smarter.
Daxton: I would go into classrooms and give hard workers golden tickets.
Grace: I would have an office. I would not have to share.
Kendyl: I could walk around and talk to kids.
Henry: I would want to take pictures with kids.
I would NOT like to be a principal:
Kinzey: I want to be a farmer instead. Principals can’t go outside much.
Jaxson: It would be hard, just think of it….I don’t want to talk to angry kids right? They would not talk, just kick the chair.
Julian: I would have to sit in my office all day. I would rather play outside.
Alayna: I would do a lot of paperwork, My hand would get tired and my arms and my eyes would get tired.
Kaylee: You would be in your office all day.
Reyse: It is hard work and it is boring.
Matthew: I want to be a lumberjack when I grow up.
Berlin: Pets aren’t allowed in school.
Kinley: I don’t want to be the boss of the teachers.
Peyton: I want to be a police officer when I grow up.
Zoe: Being a principal is boring.
Anthony: I would rather be at home.
Xander: I would not get paid much, then I wouldn’t be able to get a lamborghini.
Lillian: It is hard work and I just want to stay home.
Kaleb: I would rather be a famous football player.
