Today is Veteran's Day. We made sure that our Flag is flying in the front yard this morning. We will sing our National Anthem after saying the Pledge of Allegiance. We will use Uncle Rick's Veteran's Day Story to learn more about this holiday. We will also make a Patriotic Star Wreath and we will work on a Veteran's Day Word Search.
-Sometimes on a holiday we have a day of lessons that focus more on that holiday's theme.
Update: We also watched an online video of the changing of the guard at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. On Kent's patriotic wreath we wrote, "Thank you for your service to our country." Then we put it on our neighbor's easy chair in his garage, because he is a veteran.
