Remembrance Day


Posted by nancyb1415 | Posted in Language Arts | Posted on November 25, 2014

Dear Veteran,


Thank you for fighting for our country. Thank you for keeping our country and other countries safe. Thank you for keeping peace and freedom for our country. Thank you for keeping our schools peaceful in our country.  We learned that poppy long ago had green centres and now it is black.

During World War 1, many battles were fought in the place called Flanders Fields. We learned that  World  War 1 came to an end at eleven o’ clock on November 11th in 1918 and that is why we have Remembrance Day.  John  Mc Crae wrote  the poem in Flanders Fields because his friend died in war. The Peace Tower has fifty-three bells and is located on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.  The bells are rung on Remembrance Day.   The National War Memorial is found in Confederation Square in Ottawa, Canada’s capital city.

We  sang, “Just One Candle,” at the Remembrance Day Assembly. We made a clay poppy in Art. I enjoyed listening to the grade ones sing at the assembly.  We bowed our head for two minutes of silence to show our respect for the soldiers that died in war.  I enjoyed listening to, “Pittance of Time,” which is a song that remembers the soldiers.  Thank you for serving our country.

Yours Truly,

Thank you for sharing your Remembrance Day activities. Did you enjoy singing in front of the school?

Great job, Nancy! You included some great information showing that you understand the importance of Remembrance Day. Continue to work on stating the facts rather than saying I learned this. Also, keep working on adding detail and descriptive adjectives to your writing to make it more interesting. Great job on your poppy! Keep working, hard! 🙂
