Happy Birthday Martin!












Today we celebrated Dr. King's birthday! We started out by reading "Martin's Big Words" and "Paths to Peace." We talked about life in the south during the 1950's and '60's and how Dr. King changed people's minds and hearts. We also talked about Dr. King's assasination. Goose and Binky each lit a candle to remember Dr. King and his life's work. Next, we made a Peace Wall. We cut out different colored hands from construction paper and wrote down some ideas about creating peace. We also talked about ways in which they could each practice peace here at home. They made a list of words that inspire peace during disagreements. The kids really enjoyed doing this! Binky had tears in his eyes during the story. Tomorrow we will watch the "I have a dream..." speech. I am looking forward to that!
