Next I talked to the children about how President Obama was going to talk to school children about how important it is to go to school and work hard. He would also talk about how some children don't have as many things as other children. They might not have as much money or food as other children or they might not live in a safe neighborhood but they still need to work hard.
While watching the speech, some of the younger children became distracted but all seemed to take out of the discussion that you need to try even when things are hard. I will be reminding the class about the ideas brought up by President Obama as the year goes on.
