I LOVE MY FLAG (tune: Yankee Doodle)

I love my flag, my country's flag
The red and white and blue.
It has broad stripes and fifty stars,
And stands for freedom, too.

I use this after the pledge of allegiance has been recited with my kinders. It would be fine alone for younger pre-schoolers. Discuss the words. Have someone hold the flag!
