Veterans' Day ideas!

This post is a tad bit last minute, but here are some ways to bring Veterans' Day into your classroom for tomorrow!

 Today, the kids traced their hands and cut them out of red, white, and blue paper. We assembled this darling, patriotic turkey. The kids were so excited to assemble this turkey and get ready for our Veterans' Day presentations tomorrow!

Interactive notebook resources

To celebrate Veterans' Day, my students will be making some of my Veterans' Day interactive notebook resources, which are available for $4 at my Teachers Pay Teachers store. First, we will watch a BrainPop on Veterans' Day. Next, we will talk about the five branches of military, and fill out the flipbook underneath.

During literacy stations, I will have both a guide word station and a part of speech sort! Guide words and using a dictionary is hard for my third-graders, so we have plenty of practice throughout the year. My kiddos love these holiday themed guide word searches, makes a dictionary much more fun :-)

Finally, I will be doing a read aloud on Veterans' Day! I will be reading "The Wall" by Eve Bunting, but some other great Veterans' Day books include "Don't Forget, God Bless Our Troops" by Jill Biden and "A Poppy Is to Remember" by Heather Patterson.

Happy Veterans' Day to all those amazing men and women who have served and are currently serving in the military! Thank you today and everyday for all that you do.
