***UPDATED 10/20/13 In order to educate my students on why we celebrate and more importantly honor Veterans, I have created this 27-page writing prompt and Dog Tag craft. Not only did they write friendly letters to veterans, but they also learned about the history of military dog tags and why poppies are often symbolic of Veterans Day.
This downloads in English plus a FREE Spanish version. It has a variety of resources for your Veteran's Day unit or lessons. It includes a mini book, comprehension questions and graphic organizers. I made these Veteran's Day activities to use with my beginner readers.
