It's about time for Veterans' Day, teachers! That means it's about time for a poem. And, of course, some activities to go with it.
You could also challenge your students' detective skills. Since this poem is replete with polysyllabic words, ask them to find all the 3 syllable words, 4 syllable words, etc. Put this poem in a literacy center and direct your students to find and list all the homophones and their alternate spellings.
The poem and possibilities are found in my unit, Poetry Possibilities -- Fall.
Thank you, Veterans!
