Star-Spangled Banner

For the next couple of weeks, we will be working on memorizing The Star-Spangled Banner. My plan was to create a few resources like I usually do, but when I looked around, I found plenty of other websites offering free resources to use. So thankful for all the bloggers out there willing to share their resources and gifts! 🙂

Here’s the ones we will be using.  The first one is found at (When you click on the link, make sure to scroll down the post to find this resource).  I love  the illustrated sentences!


They also have a mini-book with the illustrated sentences.


I am planning on printing it twice and cutting it into small cards. This way I can give it to the kids and ask them to put it in the correct order. The mini-book pages are just the right size for this. There are a few more resources on this page, so head on over to that site and check out what would work for your kids best.

For those who can read music and play and instrument I found the music at  This site also offers a free download with a few sheets for older students (quiz, comprehension questions and writing activity among others). When you go to this page, you will need to scroll down. The Star-Spangled Banner is the third post on that page.

Lastly, I did end up making a quick resource. This one is for students who can read. I just made sentence strips without illustrations. This will require the kids to recall the words without any visual aids. My kids are finally reading fluently, so I think this will be a great resource to use with them.
