We had a really interesting discussion today about Martin Luther King, Jr. We listened to a story written by King's niece and learned more about his life at home. The children had a lot of questions about segregation. We watched a short clip of part of the I Have a Dream speech. We talked about solving problems peacefully and discussed how we can solve problems. The children shared examples of problems and what they did to solve them peacefully. We talked about the word compromise too. Ask me to tell you how I can solve problems peacefully.
Of course, we talked about snow today too! There are some pretty excited kids leaving school today! I shared the sites on our website Just for Kids tabs they could visit when they are cooped up during the blizzard.
We are continuing to collect toothbrushes through next Friday. Hopefully we will be back in school before then! Thanks to everyone who has sent in toothbrushes already!
My friends are bundled up and ready for the blizzard! Be safe and I hope you have fun with your little ones in the snow!
