How I Predicted Today Going…
I really wasn’t sure how the kids would like this book. Since I knew I was going to be gone for Fourth of July this year, I wanted to pick a book with a patriotic theme. I thought maybe at least one child would know about the Pledge of Allegiance or know something about the US flag, but none did so it was pretty brand new to them which lead into lots of discussions.

Activities Produced from that Story:
Learned about Flags
Learned about the US Presidents
Started learning the Pledge of Allegiance
Talked about the shapes in flags
Talked about colors in flags
Made our own flags
Made a Patriotic reading center

What We Learned Today:
Worked on color recognition when looking at the different flags
Worked on shape recognition when looking at the different flags
Started learning the Pledge of Allegiance
Worked on creativity & imagination when designing our own flags
Worked on pre-literacy skills when “reading” books in the patriotic themed reading center
