Fw: Honor those who've served

Honor those who've served

The White House, Washington

Good afternoon, 
For 92 years, our nation has set aside November 11th as a day to honor those who have served in our armed forces. Originally, the day was set aside to celebrate the veterans of the First World War. Later, it was broadened to include every man and woman who has worn the uniform of the United States. And today, we continue that tradition by honoring the service and sacrifice of our troops and veterans.
But I believe that this commemoration should last much longer than just 24 hours, once a year. That's why Jill Biden and I launched the Joining Forces initiative to honor, recognize, and support the veterans and military families who have given our nation so much.  We're issuing a call to all Americans, so that everyone asks themselves one simple question: How can I give back? 
We've been overwhelmed by responses from across the country. Businesses are hiring more veterans. Nonprofit organizations are working with military children. And individuals all across the country have stepped up to help out in their community. How will you give back?
Find service opportunities, pledge hours of service, send your message of thanks, get involved
Our efforts with Joining Forces come on top of the many actions my husband has made on behalf of our veterans and military families.
He's worked to send 600,000 veterans back to school on the Post-9/11 GI Bill and taken steps to help veterans translate military experience to the private sector job market. He repealed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" -- so that our troops don't have to live a lie in order to serve the country they love. He ended the war in Iraq -- our service men and women there will be home for the holidays. And just yesterday, the Senate passed two tax credits that he proposed to encourage businesses to hire America's veterans and wounded warriors.
So inside and outside of government, we're building a wave of support to honor and recognize our veterans and their families. We can use your help. Today, let's all find a new way that we can get involved in our communities, not just for Veterans Day, but every day. 
Michelle Obama

JES Fourth Grade Thankfulness Turkey

336916_10150455358118169_538713168_10373532_144736895_o (1)
I saw a similar idea to this on PinIntrest a few weeks ago, where for a first grade class each child had a sentence strip and they wrote what they were thankful for on there. I decided that we as fourth graders needed to do something similar, but as fourth graders we could write essays on what we are thankful for. I found a pattern of a turkey online, put it up on my promeathen board, traced it out, and then cut out 67 feathers.

Each of my students was given a feather on which they were to write an couple of paragraphs about what they are thankful for. This was a HUGE success, my kids loved doing it, and they love reading each other's writing as they are in line or going down the hallway.

Not that you can tell in this picture from my phone, but our turkey goes from my bulletin board almost all the way to the next door down. The feathers on the top go up as high as I can reach when standing on a chair, and the bottom ones almost touch the floor.  :-)  The little white pieces you can see on the feathers is where I did my commentary, with either meets standards, exceeds standards, or needs a little work to meet standards. I used computer labels to make them as I didn't want the commentary to be the focus of the project.
