Every year in the library, I teach lessons related to Veteran’s Day. It takes me two weeks because it takes me two weeks to see all six grades. With the third graders I read Margot Raven’s America’s White Table. This is one of my favorite photos that I have taken with this lesson. I always set up an example of the POW/MIA table in the library. And, just like the girl in Raven’s book, I write hero in the grains of salt that represent the family’s tears.
