Veteran's Day 2012

Veteran's Day is never to be forgotten and it is never too early to talk about it with children.  Friday we spent the entire day playing patriotic music and talking about what people who serve or have served our country.  My favorite comment of the day was from sweet "M".  At the end of the day he said, "WOW Mrs. Karen, we would be in a lot of trouble if we didn't have veterans!".  No more words are needed, I'll just show you how our class honored veterans on Friday.
Everyone had their photo taken holding our flag and the little poem reads -


History

I read of patriots long ago
Who fought to buy the peace I know.
They gave all that they had
So that I could be glad,
Living in a country free
Enjoy peace and prosperity.

Men and women once like me,
Wanted their country to be free.
They fought hard, they fought long,
Some gave their lives to conquer wrong.
That we might live in liberty,
Enjoying peace and prosperity.

Thank you to our veterans who have 

served our country!
