Patriot Day-- 9/11

posted Sep 11, 2014, 7:09 AM by Jesse Kohls

As a building we believe it is important to recognize Patriot Day.  We will begin our day by playing the National Anthem and in art class students will remember Patriot Day by making red/white/blue bracelets.  Each grade level will also acknowledge and address Patriot Day in their class rooms.

Kindergarten - Read aloud the book, Pledge of Allegiance.  We will review why we say the pledge, how we stand proud for our country when we say the pledge, and discuss what it means to be patriotic.  We will also discuss the colors of the flag and color a flag with color labels.

First Grade- The first grade teachers will read and discuss the book "September 12th  We knew everything would be all right".

Second Grade- The teacher will read The Man Who Walked Between the Towers.  We will have a grade appropriate conversation why the buildings no longer stand and why we remember the day.

Third Grade- For Our Patriot Day lesson, some teachers will be reading and discussing and/or watching a video clip of the book The Man Who Walked Between the Towers by Mordicai Gerstein. Other teachers will be viewing and discussing the iBook, September 11,2001: A Day in History by Evelyn B. Block.

Fourth Grade- The fourth grade plan for Patriot Day is to discuss the meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance.  As a grade level we will go through each line of the Pledge and discuss what it means.
