This is a great product that can be used in the beginning of the school year. I have personally used it along with my student's unit on the Pledge of Allegiance and citizenship. Not only does it connect to social studies standards as well as ELA standards, but it can help with classroom management problems as well. Students are encouraged to write their own pledge to the classroom and can include such details such as pledges to complete their homework or pledges to make new friends. This includes great writing practice for students as well!
