Let’s start at the very beginning , a very good place to start. When you read you begin with A-B-C, when you are in 4-H we start with Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.
”I pledge my HEAD to clearer thinking” – HEAD stands for decision making, planning, organizing, problem solving and using knowledge throughout life.
How can we teach our youth the pledge?
- Say the pledge at each meeting after The Pledge of Allegiance
- Recite one line at a time
- Teach the hand motions
- Give your youth an opportunity to lead the pledge during a meeting
- Offer the Cloverbuds an opportunity to recite the pledge at the county project fair
