Pretend you are running for president. Write a campaign slogan that you could put on a poster. It should include your name and tell people to vote for you. You can use rhyme, alliteration (starting words with the same letter) or a fun theme (American eagles, flags or fireworks for example).
Bonus: Create your campaign poster with your slogan and an image!
