Happy Veteran’s Day!
I am on the last day of my four day weekend. It’s gray and cloudy and cold. In other words, the absolute perfect reason to stay inside under a blanket with a cup of coffee. I will go on record and say that I did get up early to take Murphie on a long walk. In part to make sure she got her exercise and in part to make sure that she would let me sit still on the couch.
I’m smart like that.
Because we were off yesterday, I didn’t have a chance to teach about Veteran’s Day. And, yes, I could have done it on Friday . . . but . . . well . . . I didn’t. And I don’t really have an excuse unless you count it kind of snuck up on me and I wasn’t prepared an excuse.
So tomorrow is the day! And we’ll talk about why we had a school holiday the day before. We might also have to do a mini lesson on today, yesterday, and tomorrow but that’s neither here nor there.
I have done a bit of research that will probably not help you out in the least seeing as how you might have needed it yesterday. But just in case . . .
I love this pack from First Grade Schoolhouse:
