Veteran’s Day is next week, but we should thank our veterans every day!  One teacher told me that she taught her children how to recognize veterans by their hat or clothing.  Whenever they see a veteran they go up, shake their hand, and say, "Thank you!"  You can't teach your students anything more important than that!!!

Veteran’s Day 

(Tune: “Danny Boy” - HAPPY EVERYTHING CD)
Today’s the day we celebrate our veterans,
The men and women who fought for our great land.
We’ll raise our flags and hold a moment of silence
And we will carry poppies in our hands.
Because we want to thank you for your service;
You traveled far to keep us safe at home.
You fought with pride and honor for our country.
Our veterans, oh how we love you so.

Here’s the link so you can download the book that Martha Shehan created.

Vocabulary – What is a veteran? For homework, have children interview their parents to find out about veterans in their family.

Poppies – Take three 7” circles cut out of red tissue paper and fold them like a fan. Twist a green pipe cleaner around the middle. Open layers to resemble a poppy. Do a search on the internet to discover why the poppy is symbol for Veteran’s Day.

Guest Speaker – Call a local military recruiting office and invite a guest speaker to share with the children what it’s like to have a job in the armed forces.

Letters to the Armed Forces
What a great way to show appreciation for our servicemen and women!
