Since this week we were talking about A for America, celebrating our nations birthday, I thought it would be appropriate to teach the Pledge of Allegiance. As I began searching for a catchy tune to help preschoolers learn the words I found really slim pickings. So I began to think of all the songs that usually get stuck in my head...well EVERY Sunday when I hear the children at church sing, "Scripture Power" I come home singing it for the rest of the day. As I began to sing good 'ol scripture power I was quite pleased that the tune and rhythm worked really well with the words of the pledge. I then went on-line to print out pictures that corresponded with the words, laminated them, and glued some felt on the back.
(If anyone would like me to send the file with the pics I would be happy to do so!)
I pledge Allegiance, to the Flag, of the United States of America
And to the Republic for which it stands, One nation under God
Indivisible, with Liberty, and Justice for all.
(I thought teaching the children about justice threw shaking hands and making things fair
seemed a little easier than explaining the pic of Lady Justice.)
Here is our Pledge of Alligiance song with River putting the pictures up on the felt board. I have never uploaded a youtube video before, but I thought it might be easier to hear how I was singing our "Pledge of Allegiance song" while River put up the pics.
