Happy Fourth of July!

I am so thankful to live in the USA and I'm grateful for those who have fought for the freedom I live in.

My country tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims pride,
From every mountainside,
Let freedom ring!

Would you believe that my class recites the Pledge of Allegiance everyday? Yes, one of the few classes that still does that. In the spring I taught my class America the Beautiful and one little girl asked me if they could sing it every day after the pledge. We did, and they never let me forget. It was so cute too that sometimes they would be working and would just spontaneously start singing it. We had a picture book that goes with the words, and it was their favorite book in the classroom. My very diverse little group was quite patriotic. Posted by Picasa

    We say the pledge every day, too! On Mondays the principal has students meet her in the office and they lead the whole school in the pledge through the intercom, and then we all sing a patriotic song. I can't believe there are elementary school teachers who don't take time for the pledge!
