What Do Kids Think President Obama Should Focus On?

As a kid living in America, what do you think are the most important things President Obama should focus on during his presidency? Health, education, the environment? PBS Kids is giving kids all over the country a chance to speak out about the issues they think are most important – and passing those messages on to the new president himself.

Here is a sample of what some kids are saying:

Our Earth

“Don’t waste time on little things. Stop the things that matter most, like pollution.” –Kirk, 14
“My idea for the earth is to stop cutting down trees and recycle so that the animals can save their homes.” –Cydnie, 12

“Stop cutting down our rain forests.” –Ashley, 9
“I’d like to see more national parks be established, in order to protect nature.” –Chris, 14
“Take care of all the endangered animals.” –Kayetlin, 7

Our Schools

“To help global warming in school, we should have days when we can ride in on our bicycles.” –Elia, 8
“We need more art classes in our school!” –Nikolina, 7
“Our president should enforce having healthier food choices in our schools.” –Nicki, 13
“Stop using electric pencil sharpeners – the old ones work fine and save energy and money.” –Tabby, 9
“We need more schools. Everyone should be able to go to school, even people who don’t have much money.” –Monique, 8

Our Health

“I think everyone should have free health care.” –Olivia, 10
“Encourage everyone to eat healthy food and do more exercise, so you don’t get sick when you’re older.” –Christina, 9
“Kids should be able to visit the doctor more often.” –Casi, 6
“Less shots and more check ups!” –Riley, 9

I would take a piece of graph paper, then line up all of the numbers. I would do 50+6758 first, then I would take the answer and subtract that by 75487 times whatever numbers. Just do it step by step and take your time and remember to ask the teacher for help. And practice over and over again because more than likely you'll get a test on this stuff. Good luck! Don't stress over it!
