Honor Our Veterans!

The months of September, October and November offer many opportunities for great units to be brought into your classroom from apples and fall to Halloween and Thanksgiving. As you are preparing your units and plans, don’t forget to include the special day, Veteran’s Day!  As teachers on a military base overseas, we honor our veterans from the American perspective and the European perspective. Our veteran’s are remembered throughout Europe for the sacrifices and aide given in times of need.

Veteran’s Day is a day that children of all ages need to be aware of since it is our veterans who have helped to keep our country free. Please take the time, even if it is just a short discussion/lesson, to recognize and honor these Americans and all they have done for us.

Some of this week’s activities brought focus to the meaning of Veterans Day.




Here’s a great video that does a great job of explaining the difference between Memorial and Veteran’s Day (starts at 4:20).
Feel free to visit thebeezyteacher pinterest board for more Veterans Day ideas!

If you need some ideas, check out the great Veteran’s Day/patriotic units being offered to bring this special day to your classroom!


Have a great week!
