Remembrance Day Letter


Posted by tinaf1516 | Posted in Language Arts | Posted on November 27, 2015

Dear Veteran,

Thank you for fighting and keeping our country safe. We saw graves of soldiers, guns, and tanks.  What a terrible thing to go through. We read a book called, “A Poppy is to Remember.” We feel sorry for the hard fight, but are thankful to fighting for us.

We learned about John McCrae and the poem he wrote after his friend was killed in war. Poppies started to grow on the soldiers graves.  The Peace Tower in Ottawa is clock and has 53 bells.

We are doing a project.  We are making a poppy picture to remember the soldiers.  We sang a, “Wish for Peace.”   In class we read a poem, “Why Wear a Poppy.” We listened Pittance of Time.  We had a Remembrance Day Ceremony at our school. There was a Veteran at the Remembrance Day Assembly.   His name was Mr. Eichelbaum.


Yours Truly,

Nice work, Tina! You demonstrated an understanding the importance of showing respect to the fallen soldiers on Remembrance Day. You explained the some of the symbols about Remembrance Day well, such as the poppy, Peace Tower, and John McCrae. However, you need to continue to stretch out your ideas by adding more detail and description. Your poppy picture turned out nicely! Keep working hard! 🙂

Your letter was done well, Tina!
