I published this post 7 years ago! I just updated it and thought it was worth sharing again because I have a lovely poem that’s perfect for Grade 1, plus a little booklet to print it in.
I also have some book suggestions and links to a several other Remembrance Day posts I’ve done over the years. Be sure to click through because there are lots of freebies, too.
A few days before Remembrance Day (November 11th in Canada) I like to teach my children the following poem.
After they’ve learned the poem they print it out on poppy-shaped paper. Each page contains one verse (3 pages in all). Underneath each row of words is a line so that they can copy the words. When the printing is finished the pages are coloured (usually with lots of little red poppies) and stapled together for a little booklet.
They look great when they’re finished and the kids really enjoy making the books.
Here’s what one of the booklet pages looks like:
These are the books I also read:
