This 12 page book is a predictable, patterned rhyming book that uses only one new word at the end of each sentence.
The twelve picture cards can be used to pre-teach the vocabulary, or for matching picture to word to text. A small flag picture is included to allow students to have active participation with each page by placing it on the sun on each page of the book, or on the object named.
Ask the students if they’ve ever seen a flag. What did it look like? What colors were on the flag? Did it have any shapes on it? You can write or draw their ideas on chart paper. Discuss the Pledge of Allegiance, why we say it, when we say it. Demonstrate putting hands on their hearts and saying the Pledge.
