Remembrance Day Activities

I bought this beautiful children's book by Bob Dylan! It's an illustrated version of the song "Blowin' in the Wind" and includes a CD.  It's the perfect book to share for Remembrance Day.

My class enjoyed viewing the beautifully delicate illustrations by Caldecott Honor medalist, Jon J Muth, and listening to the CD.

Books like this, with powerful underlying messages, always lead to the best post-reading discussions. I highly recommend you add Blowin in the Wind to your collection of Remembrance Day / Peace books.

After reading and discussing the book, I had my kids print the following poem to remind them about the meaning of Remembrance Day and to emphasize the message of peace.

They printed them on poppy-shaped pages. When they finished they added some poppy decorations and then we stapled them together to make little booklets.

What I like about these little books, is that the kids can copy their printing right underneath the text, so it's much easier for those little guys who have a hard time adjusting their eyes from the board to their paper and back again.

You can grab your own FREE COPY of these booklets through another Remembrance Day post (it also has more book recommendations)!
