On the Trail again.. and a Poppy for Remembrance
This poppy is one that we wear on November 11 to the show respect. It doesn't photograph well but there is a message that it serves (see yesterday's post). Every child is given a poppy at school which is provided by the Legion (veterans). The children often give a donation. In my class, we have devoted time each day for the past two weeks, learning about why it is important to Remember the veterans, learning poems, singing and watching video presentations of songs of peace. My class taught younger children some classic songs this week. Song list: Its a Small World, Imagine, One Tin Soldier, Blowin' In the Wind, Strangest Dream.
