Veteran's Day Letter Writing

Kylene Reed
November 4, 2019

Oh my gosh!! Today’s lesson for Operation Gratitude was amazing!! I can’t wait to share all our finished letters with you!! Did anyone else use the lesson today? It was SO powerful. My kids even said, “We’ve never written a thank you letter this good before!” ❤️ I was so proud of how hard they worked to really put their heart into the letter and make it personal.

What made the day even better, I got the privilege of texting a parent and making their day with this photo of their child’s thank you letter that he wrote. It brought tears to my eyes and filled my heart with pride. These are MY STUDENTS, at MY SCHOOL! This was one of many letters that WILL make an everlasting impact on someone, somewhere. I can’t wait to get them all in the mail!!
