Memorial Day can be difficult to explain to young children. This poem will help you to explain the reason for celebrating this national holiday. I've also included a page for an open-ended writing activity. Use it to have your students write about their plans for the Memorial Day holiday or to write about what Memorial Day means to them. The poem would be a great addition to your fluency center. You can also use the writing paper in your writing center.
