This year for Veteran’s Day, I felt the need to remind my students that Mexican-Americans are also Americans. We wrote letters of gratitude to soldiers and mailed the letters overseas. This took about 30 minutes.
We started by reading this article/worksheet for 1st and 2nd grade, and 3rd and 4th grade used this worksheet. We then started brainstorming together as a class about what we wanted to say to Veteran’s to express our gratitude.
After writing a rough draft in their cuadernos, they were given this sheet and the final product looks like what you can see in the image.
Overall, a successful class!
