This week, we¬†observe Remembrance Day.¬†November 11th is a day we STOP, take a moment and remember the brave men and women that fought for our freedom. I think it’s important for me to tell my young daughters about Remembrance Day and what it means.

How to talk to your kids about Remembrance Day. Great Resources

One of my favourite resources is this YouTube video called The Poppy Story. It’s appropriate for young children (my preschoolers were able to follow it) and it talks about the First World War, In Flanders Fields, and how the poppy pins originated:

I also found these wonderful Remembrance Day printables here on Grade ONEderful’s blog. These will be perfect for Little C to work on today (she’s 7), and Little A and I can do these together (she’s 4).

Let’s take this day and remember the sacrifices that were made for us. I never want to take those sacrifices for granted. Let’s never forget.
