Remembrance Day Letter


Posted by judithp1415 | Posted in Language Arts | Posted on November 30, 2014











Dear Veteran,

John Mc Crae wrote a poem about the soldiers that died in Flanders Fields. The Peace Tower is in Ottawa. We listened to the song called, “Pittance of Time,” on Remembrance Day. There was a war in Flanders Fields. We made clay poppies in Art class.  We made poppies to show our respect for the soldiers that died in wars. I really enjoyed the Grade One students singing at the Remembrance Day Assembly. I enjoyed the Grade Seven students playing drums on Remembrance Day. At the Remembrance Day Assembly we bowed our heads for two minutes of silence.  Thank you for serving our country.

We wear a poppy on Remembrance Day to show respect for the soldiers that died.  Long ago poppies were made with green centres. We made poppies with clay. We all held one candle and we sang, “Just One Candle,” at the Remembrance Day Assembly.  Thank you for keeping our country safe and fighting for peace and freedom. 



                                                Yours Truly,

Good work, Judy! Your letter showed you understand the importance of Remembrance Day. You included some interesting facts about Remembrance Day. We discussed in class the importance of keeping similar ideas in each paragraph. This is something you need to work on for your next writing piece. Also keep working on expanding your ideas by adding more detail to your sentences. I also enjoyed the performances by the grade one and grade seven students. Keep working hard, Judy!
