Are You Ready for Veteran's Day? {with a giveaway!}

Hello friends! What plans do you have for Veteran's day? Our school has a special assembly planned to honor veterans in our little community. This is pretty close to my heart since my daddy is a veteran. However, this is a hard concept to explain to kinders, especially if they don't know anyone in the military. So, here is how I'm going to tackle this:

 Our morning messages should help provide background and give my kinders an idea of what a veteran is.

We will also write a letter to a veteran. I give these to veteran's that I know. My daddy gets a kick out of them each year. I was also thinking of sending them to our soldiers that are overseas right now. I saw a thing on FB about sending your extra Halloween candy to the soldiers and had a website to get the addresses. We have tons of candy left from our "Fall" party that we could send with the letters. Have any of you done something like that before, successfully? What did you do? 

Ok, now the giveaway...I'm giving 2 lucky followers my Veteran's Day Morning Messages. To enter all you have to do is enter through the rafflecopter below!

  1. Would love to win this one! I have a husband, sister, and father in law in the military!

  2. This is awesome! We have so many in our class who do not know what a Veteran really is, and this would be helpful and fun, too!


I {puffy heart} love reading your comments!
