Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Today we discussed how we celebrate the life of Dr. King on Monday.  Some children knew about Rosa Parks, some knew how Dr. King worked for equal rights for all people.  After a discussion and short video from Brain Pop, Jr. about Dr. King's life, we brainstormed what it means to be able to have freedoms and how we can keep working to make our world better.

After reading the poem With My Two Hands, each child wrote about how they would make the world a kinder place.  Their wonderful words will go into a class book for our library!
