By the time I get students in the fifth grade, it is almost comical the words they substitute in the Pledge that make sense in their world. Before students head into summer and celebrate Memorial Day, Flag Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day, Room 102 decided to study the text and the vocabulary of the Pledge of Allegiance. After students defined all the difficult words in the Pledge, they created posters to take home with them.
Students display their posters before taking them home.
