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!
