Celebrate Veterans’ Day with everyone’s favorite old lady! There Was an Old Lady With a Flag on Display: Veterans’ Day Book and Literature Unit includes a full-length original book and 3 literacy and language activities for follow up! The book follows the Old Lady-book style with rhyming and repetition. Follow the old lady as she displays a flag, wears red, white and blue, pins on a yellow ribbon, goes to a parade, places flags on graves, plays “Taps,” thanks veterans, observes a moment of silence and sends a card to a soldier! Each page also includes a fun fact about the patriotic action. Follow up book companion activities include:
1. Picture sequence cards for retelling
2. Comprehension question cards
3. Written response writing a thank you letter to a veteran
Have fun with the old lady by learning some Veterans’ Day facts, as well as targeting language and literacy skills!
Please Note: The book and book companion are nearly identical to the Memorial Day unit, with just a few changes to better represent Veterans’ Day.
