America the Brave Election Day and Veterans Day

November is a BIG month for Social Studies.  Just as October was packed with terrific themes we can now shift into a new focus of learning about our country, our war heroes, and Election Day.  I didn’t always love these themes quite as much as pumpkins, spiders, and bats, but as the years go by, I realize how important they really are!

America the Brave Election Day and Veterans Day

Because Election Day is November 3rd.  Let’s start there!  Inside the activity book, you can create your own class election.  Decide what your class will be voting on.  Perhaps your story time choice, a special snack, a class elected president, or even a special reward to earn.  Have an official election while learning all about the process.



Create this fun flag craft and use the included stars or make your own stars with a white dauber or paint and Q-tips on blue paper.  If you choose, embellish the flag with your button or an included Veteran graphic.


Dive into the activities that will help teach all about our military, our country, our symbols, Veterans, and more.





Write a thank you letter to Veterans to display for your assembly.


I have never been able to make it through a Veterans Day Assembly without tears of gratitude.  It’s such an incredible sacrifice.  The Patriotic music just does me in.

  1. Hey Reagan! I LOVE all your interactive books like this!! So excited for this one! In my district our social studies focus for the year in first grade it learning all about families! How families are different, the rules in our families, different homes/places families live, different traditions/cultures families experience…etc!

    I would just die of happiness if you made one of these for families!! And I would of course email the TPT link to every first grade teacher in my district!! Please consider it!

    Thanks for sharing your talent!
