With next Monday being Martin Luther King, Jr. day, my class has been learning about MLK and civil rights this week.
On Monday, we read Martin’s Big Words and also an easy reader biography about Rosa Parks. We talked about some vocabulary words such as racism, prejudiced, and boycott.
On Wednesday we met with our kindergarten buddies, watched the video for Martin’s Big Words (only 8 mins, so great for a group of 65 five and eight year olds!!). I highly recommend this video. It’s read by a man with a melodic, deep voice and features gospel music in the background. It sends chills down my spine – I’m kinda sensy though! 🙂 After the video, we did this art project, inspired by Pinterest:
