With the presidential election tomorrow and Veterans Day fast approaching, I have decided to share some of my favorite patriotic alphabetic books. These can provide unique opportunities to help your students learn more about the United States as well as focus their attention on those who have and currently do serve our country.
Maybe your students will be inspired to create their own ABC book – a fun way for learners of all ages to dive in and learn more about topics that interest them.
