Top 5 Resources for Celebrating Memorial Day in the Classroom

Today,  I wanted to share with you my favorite go to resources for celebrating and learning about Memorial Day in the classroom.
Soldier Boy and Girl Craft and Writing Templates from Miss Kindergarten - This is definitely one of my favorite go to craftivities for patriotic holidays.  Sometimes I have students create these for Veteran's Day and sometimes I use them for Memorial Day. But they always look adorable displayed with our writing.
Memorial Day Fact and Opinion from Jessica Tobin - I love this quick pack for practicing fact and opinion because it includes sorting for whole group, small group, and individual practice as well as a fun board game for even more practice.
Raise the Flag Review Game from Pink Cat Studio - At the end of the year I feel like we are constantly reviewing and testing everything, so I love that this game can be used for any topic and it fits the Memorial Day theme.  To use, just grab your questions, and divide the class into 5 teams and project the powerpoint on an interactive whiteboard. When a team gets  question correct you simply press their character and the cute little character raises their flag.  First one to the top wins!
American Heroes for Little Learners from Mel D-Seusstastic - This pack has TONS of adorable printable coloring and writing pages to choose from, and best of all...its FREE!
Celebrating America Pack -  I just finished updating this pack with activities for all patriotic holidays. I love that I can pull different activities from this pack to use all year long, and the emergent readers are short and informative for my young students. Here's a peek at what's inside:
