When I saw Erin Bradley's super cute 4th of July papers, I just had to make something with them! I will be teaching the Pledge of Allegiance to students who will be learning it for the first time this year. So, I made these cute posters with Erin's papers. Click on the picture to get your copy from Teacher's Notebook, or click on my sidebar to go to TpT.
I love putting dots or small stickers under words on posters and on poems and songs in the pocket chart. When I teach whatever is on the poster, I use a pointer to point to each dot. Eventually, I allow the kids to come up and "read" whatever is on the poster, and the dots help them track the print and develop one-to-one correspondence. I added the dots to the pledge because we'll be saying it every day and it can become a learning tool!
Because I work in a Christian school, I also created similar posters for the pledge to the Christian flag. Click here to download!
