Happy Birthday, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.!

We read "Martin's Big Words,"

"My Brother Martin,"


"Ruby Bridges Goes To School," and

"Through My Eyes."

We wrote on different colored hands

things that Dr. MLK taught us

that still apply to our world today

like what Avery learned: "You can make a difference by being nice to each other."

Mark wants you to know that "It doesn't matter what your skin is, we're still all the same."

Kaleb learned "Don't punch. Fight back with words. Love beats hate."

Kodee's advice? "Be nice to others."

Makensie says, "You can help people be brave."

Dr. MLK taught Dylan "to be nice to everyone."

Caleigh says Dr. MLK wants us "to be nice to people."
