"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today."- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
This past Monday, January 16th, we observed Martin Luther King Day. Many classrooms took time to discuss the importance of this day. Kindergarten teachers used class time, the Friday before, to discuss who Dr. Martin Luther King was and why we have a day of celebration in his honor. Students learned about the message Dr. Martin Luther King had for our nation through his "I Have A Dream," speech. Kindergarteners shared the dreams they had for their school and classroom. Classrooms made collaborative posters, where each student wrote their dreams. Words such as share, kind, joy, happiness, and helping were written on the posters. The students really understood the mesasge from Dr. Martin Luther King and these words show that our students have great dreams for our school.
