An End of Year Message from Wreaths Across America's Curriculum Director

It seems as though school just started, and here we are almost in November! Where has the time gone? November is full of exciting opportunities for your classrooms and Wreaths Across America is happy to share free downloadable lesson plans for American Indian Heritage Month, Election Day, and Veterans Day. The resources, available here, are created for teachers, parents and anyone involved in educating our young people.


In December, we encourage you to check out our special lesson plans to help young people Remember our fallen, Honor those who serve, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom.


We have exciting news for 2024! In February, Wreaths Across America will launch a quarterly Webinar for Teachers. Our first guest will be Andrew Huber, a Liaison Specialist for the Veterans History Project from the Library of Congress. He will share information on how students can conduct interviews with veterans in their local communities that can become a part of the LOC Collection of interviews. Andrew has a Guest Blog in this edition of Teaching Times with Wreaths Across America. You can read Andrew’s Blog here.


As Thanksgiving draws near, Wreaths Across America would like to offer our most sincere thanks to all of our teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, janitors, cafeteria workers and anyone else who is involved in the education of our young people across the country on a daily basis. It doesn’t matter which job you perform; you are an integral part of the lives of our children and we extend our heartfelt gratitude to each of you!


And finally, we encourage you to sign up for the “Teaching Times With Wreaths Across America” quarterly newsletter, HERE, so you can continue to receive the latest information on the free resources available across the country! Again, we thank you for all you do for our country, by educating our next generation of leaders!

Best regards,
