This past week in Kindergarten we worked on really understanding what the Pledge of Allegiance means, how to recite it and all the different parts that make it up. I shared a pocket chart activity that I had created with my students and we read and reread the Pledge of Allegiance as we put the chart together. Students practiced with a partner reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and then we culminated our activity by reading together and coloring our Pledge of Allegiance emergent reader along with the Colored Teacher Version that I used on my smart board. These readers were then placed in to our book boxes so we could read and reread our Pledge.
My students are getting so good at tracking and using their picture clues as they are reading many different emergent readers. It is exciting to see. I am going to revisit this activity this coming Tuesday for Constitution Day. I found these great Pledge badges over at Little Miss Kindergarten's blog that we will use as well. We will color our flag that day as well, maybe talking a little about the pattern that we see on our flag! Here is a flag freebie for you to enjoy! Click here:
