Veterans Day Resources
I was planning for Veterans Day and while it isn’t exactly a strategy, all public schools are required to recognize this holiday and my research might prove useful.
On my team, we’ll read the following printable during homeroom as our morning work. It is a reading comprehension with questions about the holiday from ABC Teach.
I’m testing on the day before Veterans Day, so after their test, students will create and color cards for our local veterans. My principal has connections with the VFW, and will deliver all of the cards there.
I made the cards using Microsoft Word and images from apples4theteacher, coloring.ws, first-school.ws and the Holiday Zone. PDF copies of the cards I made are attached to this post. I put a few “generic” phrases on the board to start them thinking, and encourage them to write from their heart.
- Veterans Day – Eagle and Rose
- Veterans Day – Flag and Poppy Wreath
- Veterans Day – Flag Heart Card
- Veterans Day – Poppy Lest we Forget
- Veterans Day – Ribbon Flag Card
- Veterans Day – Veteran Saluting Flag
