I love this book called H Is for Honor: A Military Family Alphabet by Devin Scillian and Victor Jushasz. It is a look at military life for the entire family. What boot camp is like, why soldiers make sacrifices, and how much letters from home mean to those serving far away.
I read this to the kids and we talk about some of the sacrifices that military
families must make so their loved ones can serve us as Army and Navy and Air Force men and women.
|This was something my nephew Tyler put up on his Facebook page one day. I typed it up and added it to a poster I keep up in my room during our study of what Memorial Day is all about.|
|Here are pictures of all the branches of the military I found online for free. The kids chose their favorites and colored them and we make a cool mural of all the symbols and uniforms of the 5 branches.|
Some coloring pages I leave out for fast finishers and some stationery sets I got on TPT. HERE are some Cute Ones. Some of them I added the words Memorial Day or a flag to. A cute math coloring page I found HERE too that I just changed a few of the harder equations. I also cut out "Presidential" and put "Memorial Day" instead.

|I love this Uncle Sam and red, white and blue quilt I have in my living room. So Patriotic!|
For Fast finishers I had a few coloring pages kids could choose from before going to centers. One of them is HERE. A cute minibook to copy, color and read is HERE. We only did 4 pages.
