Reflect with a Memorial Day Poppy Template

This printable poppy template is the perfect activity to complete this Memorial Day. Students are encouraged to complete the following Memorial Day sentence starters:

  • Memorial Day is…
  • I see…
  • I think…
  • I wonder…
  • The poppy is a symbol of…

How to use this template:

  • Color the first poppy template with the appropriate color – red. 
  • Cut out the template along the dotted lines so that each petal is able to be lifted.
  • Glue the cut out poppy template to the middle of the second template.
  • Complete the sentences on the lined petals of the second template.

Display these gorgeous templates in your classroom, or in your school office area. You may like to create a bulletin board banner for your poppy reflective writing pieces too.


✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors 

This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. 

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:

  • strengthen finger and hand muscles
  • build dexterity and fine motor skills
  • improve hand-eye coordination
  • develop focus and attention.

And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil and a fork; button a shirt and tie shoes; write, type and swipe.

Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!

This resource is over two pages, so each student will need to receive both pages to complete the poppy template.
