American Leaders: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We talked about the upcoming holiday to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As we read the story Martin's Big Words, we talked about how Dr. King stood up for fairness and equality even in times of trouble. We talked about how we can speak up with our words when we see something unfair and how we can make the world a better place with our own two hands. Each child wrote about how they could make the world a better place--their wonderful work is posted outside the classroom.
We also watched the video from Kid President on Dr. King. Kid President does such a wonderful job of reminding us that even when times are tough, we can dream and work towards that dream!
