Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

I know it is past the day but since I just began this blog, I wanted to share what my kids did for this special day.

Here are their pictures they created of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We read the book, Thank You, Dr. King by Bill Cosby. They then followed me and created their Dr. Martin Luther King Jr pictures. This activity is always my favorite because although they have the same amount and size paper, every picture is different. These follow me activities are very telling!

Another activity I love to do to teach my children about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is to read the book, The Crayon Box that Talked. This book is about a box of crayons who do not get along. A little girl buys the box of crayons and creates a beautiful picture. The crayons learn that although they are all different, they are all needed to create a picture. This activity teaches the students that we need everyone around us to get along to make the world a better place. This is a great way to teach this lesson to Kindergarteners. They then get a crayon to decorate to make it look like them. We put them in a big box and hang them in the hallway. The students are very proud of this activity!
