In celebration of this special day, and in honor of my dad, I'm knocking a dollar off for a limited time.
Keeping in mind that teachers have very little time to add extra activities to their already crammed day, I designed this Veterans Day packet with lots of easy-peasy activities for math & literacy!
* They cover a variety of standards such as shapes, numbers, skip counting, 3D cylinder shape, ABAB patterning, upper & lowercase letters, plus LOTS of writing options.
* These can be done as independent centers or with a whole group, and are great for table top activities, early finishers, centers, homework, or a sub folder.
* There are crafts, games, graphic organizers, vocabulary-building activities, puzzles, worksheets, & writing prompts, plus interesting information about Veterans Day and poppies.
The creative writing prompts are made more meaningful if you inform students that you'll be sending their completed projects to real veterans
I've included a link with a complete list of all the retirement homes for every state.
You can imagine the smiles a packet of "paper dog tag thank you notes" will bring to some lonely vets.
There are lots of choices that not only work for Veterans Day, but also Memorial Day and any other patriotic holidays as well.
Because this is such a jumbo packet, with so many options, perhaps you may only have time for one thing and not all of the rest. If that's the case, just leave a question-comment, and I'll be glad to make that item a single product for you, to make things more affordable.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students will enjoy doing something special for our courageous veterans.
