In observation of Veterans Day, students in Julianne Postiglione’s first-grade ESL class at Northwest wrote letters to veterans thanking them for their service.
“Thank you for giving us freedom and risking your lives for us,” read one letter. “Thank you for my freedom,” read another. “I can go to school because of you. You are very brave.”
The ESL first-graders used Veterans Day as an occasion to authentically develop proper sentence structure and grammar, while bringing a smile to the face of a grateful veteran.
