Color the Patriotic Classics

What famous lawyer defended 2 traitors and went on to write the most well known hymn ever written? Who mistakenly stole another nation's anthem, and made it "American?" What do Ferris Wheels and the Colorado Rockies have to do with the patriotic song, "America, the Beautiful?" Retell the brief biographies, have your children listen to the patriotic songs and color the illustrations for a patriotic learning experience!

Patriotic includes:

Yankee Doodle, The Star Spangled Banner, My Country 'Tis of Thee, Battle Hymn of the Republic, and America the Beautiful.

How the Program Works

  • Have the child start coloring or painting an illustration.
  • Take the information from the book that describes that illustration and retell this information as a story.
  • Play the music that belongs to the illustration.
  • Have the children finish the picture.

This multi-sensory approach will lock the experience in your child's mind.

The original purchasers of these books have the right to reproduce the illustrations for use with their own children only.

(Total time for Patriotic CD: approx. 30 minutes)
