we’re full swing into our week of honoring dr martin luther king jr. a couple of my favorite read alouds:
i read the first one most often. i wish it was bigger than a board book. the text seems to simplify and clarify the reality.
our week has had conversation on guns and shooting (including a preschooler sharing about the tragedy in arizona), making brown paint out of the rainbow colors, painting, painting, painting, listening to “my own two hands” by jack johnson/ben harper, a lot of “THAT’S NOT FAIR” when describing the life and times of dr king. this is one time i appreciate the phrase, “that’s not fair.”
still to come: dr king collage faces, listening to “i have a dream,” coming up with our own slogans for a peace march, and more dreaming to keep the dream alive. stay tuned.
