The Wall
 
I just read "The Wall" by Eve Bunting to my 6th graders (and I have to admit that I teared up at the end!) I was amazed by how little these kids knew about the Vietnam Memorial. A great social studies connection.

another ss connection
 
Faithful Elephants is just as good! I can't remember the author off hand but well worth reading.

Love this book!
 
I am planning on reading this book to my second graders this week. It's one of my favorites! We are then writing friendly letters to those who are away from loved ones. A nice way to connect to the celebration of Veteran's day later this week.

Yep, I used to read it to my 3rd graders when we did an Eve Bunting's author study in ELD class. But since we no longer use that ELD program, I think I will include it when I do my American Symbols social studies unit this year.
