Veterans Day - We can never say thank you enough.

We always stress the importance of Veterans Day and celebrate it with our 3rd graders.  But this is one holiday that is not about them!  We write letters to, or make cards for veterans.  We also travel to the local Veterans' Center and perform a patriotic program for them.  Our first practice as an entire grade level was this morning.  Our wonderful music teacher surprised us with a new song that she has added to the program!

It is such an amazing song that I have to share it with you all!  The kids literally brought tears to my eyes as they sang it!  I can't imagine the reaction they'll get at the Veterans' Center on Veterans Day!  They sang it for us twice, and I wish I had recorded it the second time.  Since I didn't, I have a teacher tube video of another 3rd grade class singing the same song.  I hope you love it as much as I do!

I can't wait for Veterans Day (or our next practice) so I can video or record them singing it!
