Veteran's Day

What a wonderful morning...we began the day with a Veteran's Day assembly. One of the members of the local American Legion spoke to the children about Veteran's Day in a very kid-friendly manner. He held their attention and gave a great explanation as to what Veteran's Day is all about.

When we returned to the classroom we watched a video about Veteran's Day and then read the book The Wall.

Following that we read Angela from the Arctic and used our background knowledge to help us gain deeper understanding of non fiction text. The children also searched for -oe words (we will sort these later in the week), practiced cursive handwriting and worked on reading group activities.

After eating lunch we will stack and pack and get ready to go home.
