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."

  1. Wow - it looks like you've been thinking a lot about the words of Dr. Martin Luther King. The children in my class do not know who he was, but he was a man who shaped and changed the lives of thousands of people in your country. It is good to see you thinking about his words today and how we can behave towards one another.
