My dds school did the pledge of allegience to the flag this morning. I had a student pulled aside to do frog books but her and i went to join the class. The teacher said it with the students and when it got to "under god" part she was silent and the whole class of kindergarteners yelled under god. I must admit i had a big smile on my face!!

Her right not to say it. I grade papers while the pledge goes on. Of course I have no kids in my SPED room yet. :P

I don't understand. Were you smiling because a group of children too young to understand what they're pledging shouted a catch phrase that was added into the pledge (against the wishes of the man who wrote it) in order to prove our "Godliness" to other countries? Or were you smiling because the teacher chose to excercise her right not to pledge allegiance to a God she may or may not believe in?

The original Pledge of Allegiance

"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands- one nation indivisible-with liberty and justice for all."

In June of 1954 an amendment was made to add the words "under God".

The original sounds so much better.
