Hey friends! Today I wanted to share a sweet book that could be used to discuss Veteran's Day. The Wall by Eve Bunting is about a little boy that visits the Veterans Memorial with his father. The little boy's dad lost his father when he was his son's age. They look for the name of the little boy's grandfather. While they are there they see flowers and notes along the wall. The little boy wishes he could have known his grandfather, but is proud that his grandfather was a hero! After reading this book my class creates cards that I send to the Paralyzed Veterans of America every year. My students always get a thank you from them!
I also do a handprint flag, which always turn out ah-dorable! Click here for the link! :) What do you do for Veteran's Day?
