but don’t worry, I am medicated haha! I still went to school every day because
the thought of getting a sub on week three is terrifying! So, I have been on

and give each family a week to create their own family flag. They can use
pictures and/or words. I created one of my family as an example for you. I did

the pictures below to download this freebie. Also, BIG SHOUT OUT to my bestie Tammy from Live Laugh Love Everyday in Kindergarten for giving me this great idea!
leave feedback on TPT if you buy this unit and/or a comment here with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and have
a great weekend!

White, and Blue is simply wonderful. You can see a group of littles singing it
on youtube here.
Here is the link to buy it too. I asked her if she would put it on sale until Tuesday for you and she said YES. Take a peak!
