Get ready for Veteran's Day

Welcome back!
This Friday, November 11th, is Veteran's Day.
Many people have the day off from school and/or work this Friday, but it's important for us to teach our students about Veterans and what an amazing job they do for us and our country.

Today's post will help you get ready with a song and a visual aide!

When I wrote this song, I wanted to keep it as simple as possible.

So, I used pictures to show military (soldier saluting to the American flag, and patches from each military group), a picture to represent freedom (the Statue of Liberty), and a picture to represent our country (USA map picture).

Before singing the song, I always teach/review how to say "Thank you" with sign language. We do this motion every time "We Thank You" is heard in the song. This makes it possible for many students (verbal and nonverbal students), to participate in this song.

So, below you will find the song and a windows movie that goes along with the song.

What song(s) do you like to sing to celebrate Veteran's Day?
