School is back in full swing and I'm knee deep into my school schedule with many classrooms across the county.
The weather has just recently started to feel like fall around here. The leaves are starting to change colors and it seems like pumpkins are everywhere you look. This month I've been singing about fall, leaves, apples, pumpkins, weather and Halloween. Stay tuned for additional song posts about those topics!
Today I want to share a song I very recently wrote for the Pledge of Allegiance. I created the music for this song after talking with a teacher who inquired if there was a song for the pledge. When the teacher asked me, I did not recall ever hearing a song for the pledge. I did some searching online and found a few possibilities, but wanted to create my own in order to provide a slower pace and include some sort of percussive beat in the background (I have observed this to motivate many of the students to focus on the song, the words,etc.. It really draws them in!) The students have eagerly requested the pledge song since I recorded it and they are well on their way to reciting the pledge as well! :)
The song is below. The lyrics are the exact words of the Pledge of Allegiance.
Thanks for stopping by (in the midst of my long and overdue blog post), and stay tuned for another song post next week!
