I had a request for just the “Thank You!” woven star craftivity from my big Veterans Day Math & Literacy packet,
so here it is.
If there are any other craft activities
in any of the other jumbo packets
that someone else would like to buy separately
, simply send me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
or leave a note in the QUESTION section on TpT and I’ll be happy to make a separate packet
and post it on TpT.
No matter what grade I taught, I found that whenever I added a bit of craftiness to a standard or writing prompt
, I instantly grabbed my students' attention, and they were excited to get right down to business.
This patriotic-colored “Thank You”
star is a fun way to say thank you to a person in the military
From another country? Just switch the color scheme to fit.
Younger kiddos can simply make the star craft
, while older students can jot a thank you note
down the red, white and blue “dangling” strips.
You can keep things simple by just gluing the strips to the back of the star, or add some great fine-motor skill
practice and pizzazz by having students weave the strips. (See photograph).
Make your students’ writing
much more meaningful, by letting them know that you will be sending their completed project to a real soldier, veteran or hometown hero.
Almost every year, I had at least one student who had a family member in the military.
We chose that person to send our Veterans Day
They always wrote back that they shared our work with their comrades, and many sent photographs.
If you don’t know of someone, check out the link
I've included for a list of homes for veterans.
I'm Diane, from Teach With Me, wishing everyone a peace-filled year.
