Almost everyone in America knows the Pledge of Allegiance. When you were a kid you more than likely rattled it off every day as fast as possible without even really understanding it. I know I did. It wasn’t anything important, just part of the day like attendance and recess. I didn’t know much about it until I was at church learning about the pledge to the American Flag, the Christian Flag, and the Bible. I remember spending about a month learning about each flag and pledge.
We learned what the pledge really meant, the significance of the colors on the flag, and how to care for it. After that, saying the pledge every morning at school meant a little bit more to me. It was no longer a task to hurry through, but a time of respect.
AJ learned the pledge in kindergarten. She would mess up the words and had no idea what they meant, but she knew it. When she got to be in about third grade we learned a lot about the American Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. We learned the history behind the flag and some basic rules about it.
We don’t say the pledge every day. Maybe we should, but it is not something we do. She knows a lot about the flag, but during times when the country seems to be a little more patriotic I try to revisit our study of the American Flag. We go over the pledge, the look and care for the American Flag, the Star Spangled Banner, and a few other items.
I made this packet for AJ to work on. It covers some basic facts about the American Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. I will have AJ fill out most of it from memory, and the rest I will have her look up. Your child may be able to answer the questions from prior knowledge, or they may need a little help. Here are a few websites that may help.

I didn’t read very many chapter books as a child. In elementary school we didn’t have read-alouds. The closest we ever came to being read to was an Encyclopedia Brown Mystery a few times a week in 5th grade. We went to the library at school every two weeks, but there was never any direction given about what to read. Often those books sat in our desks and we never touched them. Sixth grade was my favorite year, and the year I learned the most. But we didn’t read a single book as a class. We didn’t have book reports, and the only things we read were nonfiction.
Seventh and eighth grades were wonderful. I went to a prep school and we read a lot! I fell in love with books in 7th grade. I remember reading The Giver and a few other books. We read a lot in high school as well. When it came to reading with AJ, I had a lot of books that I wanted to read with her in her high school years, but I had no clue what to read with her before that.
Since she is a reluctant reader I tried to find books that were fun, classics, or books that I had always wanted to read. One of those books is Pippi Longstocking.
The story of Pippi Longstocking always intrigued me, so I thought it would be fun for AJ to read. After looking all over though, I couldn’t find a good literature study for Pippi Longstocking. I decided to make one for AJ. I took it farther than just comprehension questions. It includes sequencing, true false questions, short answer, characterization, and more.
If you read one chapter a day the study will last 12 days. We do a 4 day school week so we stretched it over three weeks.

It is hard to believe that Memorial Day is right around the corner. On the last Monday on May families gather together to celebrate the start of summer. There are BBQs, pool parties, and usually a lot of fun. Unfortunately, too many forget that the real reason for the holiday isn’t just a paid day off of work.
Memorial Day is a time to honor those who lost their lives while fighting for our country. While we will be swimming and enjoying time together as a family, I want to make sure we take time out of our day to remember those who died fighting for our freedom. I made this word search and crossword puzzle to help kids remember the reason for the holiday. It is day 9 of my 30 days of FREE Printables!

Welcome to day 8 of my 30 days of FREE Printables! Today I am sharing a simple grammar worksheet. I shared yesterday how AJ has a hard time with adverbs. She seems to think that any word that ends in”ly” is automatically an adverb. To help her understand that some “ly” words are adjectives, and that a lot of adverbs have other endings, I created this worksheet for her.
There are two different versions of the worksheet. The first has a list of 25 words that needs to be cut out and sorted, the second has a word box and the student writes the words in the correct category.

Adverbs are a hard part of speech to learn. They can modify verbs, adjectives, other adverbs, and even complete sentences! They are one part of speech that AJ had a little problem picking out in sentences. I created a simple worksheet where she had to list the different adverbs under the correct type. It seemed to help her out a lot. We also used a few other fun resources to help her grasp the concept of adverbs. One of our favorite things was the memorable song, “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly Get your Adverb On” from School House Rock!

One of the many books we have read this year was Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl. We read it as part of a unit study about Roald Dahl. We ended up reading four of his books and comparing his writings and the types of characters in his books. I was able to find free studies for all of the books except for Fantastic Mr. Fox, so I made one myself. AJ enjoyed the book and the study. She even enjoyed the movie even though it was nothing like the book.
