Veterans Day Close Reading

Veterans Day is a holiday that typically doesn’t get much attention in schools beyond the excitement of a day off from school. Part of the problem is that there aren’t many teaching tools available. Veterans Day Close Reading will help to fill the gap and help your student learn about and better appreciate this important American holiday through which we say thank you to those who have given to us in service to our country.

Included are:

  • an informational text for student reading
  • a follow-up student worksheet and a teacher answer key
  • a decorative sheet of writing paper for letter or other writing
  • BONUS: a ‘Dig-In’ close reading procedure for use with this or any other informational text
