To celebrate Martin Luther King Jr Day, we learned a lot of facts about segregation and works that Dr. King went through to make our country a better place for EVERYONE. After reading a book called "Martin's Big Words," we brainstormed his big words (below). Then we wrote our own big words. We created a poster on the iPad. It was sent home through Box.com so please make sure to check it out.
We also read a story of Ruby Bridges. We could not believe hardship that 6-year-old Ruby went through. We wrote a letter to Ruby. I was very touched by their compassion and sincere empathy that my students expressed in their letters. I actually sent a link of this Little Bird Tales to Ms. Bridges' official site. I hope she will have time to view it some day.
