Veterans Day Emergent Reader, Videos and More!


Veterans Day is a big deal in my home and my community. Not only is my husband currently serving in the Army, I am also an Army Veteran. My father and my uncle were also veterans. We live on a military base, and a lot of my students have family members in the military.  
This is my husband and I, right after we met during advanced training! He's been in the Army for almost 20 years, and we've been married for 19 years!

So as you can imagine, we celebrate Veterans Day in a big way! Here are some of the books and videos I use in my classroom, and a freebie for you as well! Affiliate links to Amazon are provided for your convenience.Enjoy, and don't forget to thank a Veteran!

Are you a Target mini eraser fiend? I stalk that Dollar Spot every chance I can, hoping to snag some mini erases! My students LOVE them, so much so that they'll happily practice math skills all day long, just for the chance to work with the erasers!
When I saw the Halloween erasers this year, I just had to create some activities to go with them!

 Ten frame mats and number cards for the jack o'lantern and black cat erasers!
