Salute the Military Kids!

Social Studies Lesson – “Salute the Military Kids”
By TheBeezyTeacher

K-1st Grade

April is the month of the military child. There are several hundred thousand children today in US or overseas public schools whose parents are in the military. A high degree of mobility is demanded of these children and of their parents. Relocation is a reality that a significant number of these dependents are separated from at least one parent due to overseas deployment. Kids of Active Duty, move around the world, acclimating themselves to new cultures, new friends, new homes and new surroundings. As overseas educators, we are of the belief that those who serve our country should not sacrifice the success of their children. They are strong. They are resilient. They are adaptable. They have inspired us to give it our all as we walk into the classroom each day. I hope these activities will create awareness of the service and sacrifices of our military's children. This is an opportunity to thank children for their support to our nation's war fighters, and recognize the important role they play in the strength of our nation by contributing to the strength of the military family.

A Salute to our Military Kids includes:
Military visor
Dog tags
Math prompts
Friendship hugs
Shirt decals
“Keep Daddy/Mommy Safe” Bracelets
Pencil toppers
Time keeping watches
Writing paper
