    We do something different in my classroom. We start each day with the pledge and then we sing one of four patriotic songs. I have the words on charts. I noticed a few years ago that many students did not know the national anthem or any other patriotic songs. For a week at a time we sing:
    The Star Spangled Banner
    God Bless America
    America the Beautiful

    My students are a little hesitant the first few days but then they really get into it. My principal loves it and often comes by to sing with us. My class knows we stand for the pledge when the second bell rings and immediately sing. Once we sit down after the song, the day has begun.
