Mentor Text Linky {10.27.13}

We are linking up with Collaboration Cuties for the Mentor Text Linky.  This week the theme is Social Studies. At our school we celebrate Veteran's Day in a BIG way!  We have a special assembly with family members that are veterans. We read the book, Veteran's Day, to teach the kiddos about the importance of the holiday.



These are books we'd like to try out....



We make these cute soldiers to hang up around the school to celebrate Veteran's Day.  They turn out SO CUTE!!!


Here is letter paper if your class would like to write letters to soldiers:


Have a nice week! Don't forget to join us tomorrow for Motivate Me Monday!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your talents!! I teach 2nd grade in Utah. I'm going to print your stationary 4 to a page like postcards and let the kiddos draw pictures on the back side for 9/11.
