“We ask them to post the picture with #Poppyproud, so that we can instil a bit more of the spirit of Remembrance Day in our generation and people of our age.”
- Create a digital poppy using one of the numerous drawing apps on the iPad. Save to the camera roll and post to class websites or blogs with Remembrance Day messages.
- Use Padlet to create a wall where the children can all post responses to a topic question about importance of Remembrance or thoughts about Remembrance Day in general.
- Create a class word cloud about Remembrance Day using one of the many word cloud generators online (Wordle, Tagxedo, Tagul)

Connecting with Literature
This year my class went to the Brisbane Writer's Festival. We were privileged to meet Morris Gleitzman and see a short play based on his new book Loyal Creatures.
The animal loses in the great wars of the past are often overlooked and this book certainly struck a chord with me as the story is practically identical to the story my father told me about my grandfather and his horse.
Hope you enjoyed reading this blog and found my ideas useful this Remembrance Day. Please feel free to leave a comment or ask a question.
