If your students could say anything to a fallen member of the United States Military on Memorial Day, what would it be? This LOW-PREP free resource was created to give your kiddos an opportunity to write a loving, caring, and supportive Memorial Day sentiment to a (fictional) member of the United States Armed Forces who is no longer living.
How it works: After choosing a United States Armed Forces member (Air Force Airman, Army Private, Marine Corps Private, or Navy Seaman), students read through a list of heartfelt statements. One statement is selected and neatly written into the speech bubble provided. Students then draw a picture of themselves and color the picture using crayons or colored pencils.
*One (1) “From My Heart” List of 15 Heartfelt Sentiments
*Four (4) “From My Heart” Heartfelt Message printables
*One (1) Writing Template (blank)
*Because this resource deals with fallen (deceased) members of the United States Military, you may want to have a brief discussion with your students about the significance and meaning of Memorial Day PRIOR to the completion of any pages within this product.
*Images of the military personnel may be colored using crayons and color pencils. SUGGESTION: have the students use MULTICULTURAL OR SKIN-TONED colored pencils and crayons!
*As an extension to this activity, you may wish to have your students write LETTERS to fallen members of the United States Armed Forces.
