A moment to reflect and resources for the classroom on Veterans Day

Happy Veterans Day to all of our men and women who have served over the years. Thank you for all that you do for us.

I find myself consistently in awe of these heroes. It is a wonderful thing to see their stories told during this time of year. It is also important to hear of their struggles and how we can support them when they are deployed and further, continue to support them when they come home.  Thanksgiving is around the corner and their service, and the service of their families here at home, is definitely something for which we can all be thankful. 

Teachers, if you are still looking for ways to celebrate Veterans Day in your classroom, the Scholastic Teacher site has everything you may need here. And a stellar list of books is available on Top Picks.
