The Pledge of Allegiance

I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America,
and to the republic for which it stands,
one nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all.

Schools across the United States begin the school day with the 31-word Pledge of Allegiance. There are numerous poems, songs, etc which may be used to enhance the message of the pledge for students. Perhaps you could consider using one of these (see below) as a Monday alternative to the Pledge. Why? Then, perhaps, students will really think about the Pledge when they recite it on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
