Image result for i pledge allegiance book"Children in the United States of America have been reciting the Pledge of Allegiance since 1892 - and for about that long, they’ve found its big words confusing. Now, beloved children’s book author Bill Martin Jr (BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR, WHAT DO YOU SEE?), fellow literacy expert Michael Sampson, and Caldecott Honor-winning artist Chris Raschka give America’s children a hand, and explain this patriotic poem once and for all."- Goodreads  


Here is a great book to be sure to add to your classroom lessons! Whether you are a kinder or first grade teacher teaching the words to the Pledge of Allegiance, or a sixth grade teacher like me who is wanting my students to reflect on the meaning behind the words of our pledge, this book is P-E-R-F-E-C-T!  Look at these cute first grade samples that were done at the beginning of the year and left up year round! Make this a favorite lesson in your class too:))
