Today is the day we honor the America flag. Mrs. Ranney's class joined Mrs. Yollis', and together they learned how to formally fold our nation's Star Spangled Banner!
|First, hold the flag parallel to the floor.|
|Fold the flag in half and then half again. Make sure the stars face up.|
|Starting at the striped end, begin folding a triangle.|
|Continue folding the triangles...|
|...until all you have left is one star spangled triangle.|
|Tuck in the end, and you have folded the American flag in a respectful manner.|
Last Fourth of July, Mrs. Yollis and her family retired three American flags. Click here to watch the ceremony.
