I am so thankful to anyone and everyone who serve this country. From Police to Firefighter to TEACHER and soldier. Today we honor the soldier (and their families) who make daily sacrifices to keep us safe. To help teach your students about our veterans, I created these Veterans Day Writing Prompts, great for kindergarten, first or second grade! I have modified the prompts so that they can be used for several different levels.
Before we begin, I wanted to recommend a few good books to help you teach about Veteran’s Day.
These are good books that help teach children what Veteran’s do. It helps give them a greater appreciation for them -instead of a sort of intangible/hard to understand concept (and big vocabulary word: Veteran!). The Book The Wall is a sad story and very sobering -but, nonetheless important. (It makes a great book for Memorial Day), but can be used for Veteran’s Day too!
Veterans Day Writing Prompts
This packet contains 15+ different Veteran’s Day Writing Prompts great to be used in kindergarten, first or second grade. As you know, kindergarten students do not really write much during the first weeks of school. Each writing prompts has 4 different pages you can use – one that has a picture with something to write, one they can write a full page prompt, one that you can cut the page in half and write a half page prompt and then one that the student can just draw. The drawing prompt allows the student to think about what they would write and put their thoughts into pictures. A picture is worth a thousand words! Pre-writing, writing prompts! Here are a few pictures of a few of the Veteran’s Day Writing Prompts. The entire packet is 60+ pages long.
