One of the greatest values that teachers and parents can teach their children is the value of being an American, which means living in freedom. In today’s society, so many young people seem to lose site of exactly how valuable that freedom is and what it is like to live without freedom. I served in the United States Air Force after graduating from high school, and when I became a teacher, I took every opportunity I could to reinforce the value of being an American.
Patriotic coloring pages, patriotic printables and patriotic songs are a fun way to teach young people to respect America, respect freedom, and respect those who serve in the military to fight for our country. Whether you are a classroom teacher, homeschool teacher, or parent, using coloring pages can be a reward for good behavior and can also be an effective motivational tool for completing assignments.
These are my favorite patriotic coloring pages and patriotic printables for young people of all ages. They are free and easy to print. Enjoy these great teaching moments and God Bless America!
