Hats Off to Heroes

Pin It
We will never forget the tragic events or the precious lives lost on September 11, 2001.   We will also never forget the brave men and women who risked their own safety that day, and every other day, to keep our homes, cities, and country safe.  This week I wanted my littles to learn about real heroes.  When I asked them to tell me about heroes, I wasn't surprised when the talk turned to Batman, Spiderman, and other super heroes from comic books and movies. 
I wanted my students to understand that while those make-believe heroes are fun, there a real heroes who serve and protect us everyday.  We spent our week learning about and honoring police officers, firefighters, and soldiers.  These are real the life heroes who deserve our gratitude and respect.

We ended the week with this little writing craftivity!
