We Remember Our Veterans

We've been learning about what a veteran is this week.  We began by watching a United Streaming video about it (US is awesome! Check it out at

We have read several books:
-Veteran's Day Rookie Reader
-The Veteran's Day Visitor
-My Hero Dad

Tomorrow, we will make star garland to take to the Veteran's Hospital.  *Everyone is given a cutout of a star and they can decorate it anyway they wish, as long as it has something that represents the military/United States.  We will also make these cute poppy poems as well.  They are simple: The kids cut 2 red tissue paper (or 1 red construction paper) circles, make a black center with paper, add a stem and slap on the poem! Here is the poppy poem. Quick and easy!

*10.30.13: This craft had a face-lift and is now included in my Veterans Day Pack.  Click the cover below to take a peek!
