thank you veterans.... from A113

we are getting ready for veterans day....a day early in A113!!...I was inspired while i was doing my morning blog stalking....when i stumbled upon the famous inspired apples veterans day art work/writing. I didn't have time to get the art project done, but i did have time to whip up a fun writing activity worksheet!!!

I made this anchor chart to fill in with the kiddos ideas/answers...my army man is pretty darn cute...if i do say so myself! ;)


Then we did a fun smartboard lesson that I found...to really get their minds working on what a veteran really is, and why it is important to honor and respect them!!
I wanted to share their ideas on how we can show them respect...their answers were pretty funny (i thought..) please excuse my awful handwriting...i'm not very good at writing on my airslate!!!



After the smart board activity that is when we filled out  the bottom part of the anchor chart "characteristics of a veteran"....they are all their answers listed!


when all of those steps were said and done....i handed out the "thank you veterans" writing worksheet for the kiddos to do independently at their desks...and wow they really got into it....it was the quietest they have been all year with independent writing work!! I put the worksheet up as a PDF on google docs...click the link below to print your own copy!

  6. Internet marketing has become a complicated discipline that involves a great
    deal of theoretical knowledge in combination with applied techniques.
    As with any online marketing activity, keep the message
    short, sweet and direct and be sure to include the necessary contact information needed to
    send in a referral. A skilled SEO campaigner knows to ease out
    a complex site and re-structure it to suit real users as well as search engines.
