On Thursday, I read Martin's Big Words to the class. My students really enjoy when I read to them. Before doing a art project called "Love comes in many colors," (students mix paints together to match their skin color, put paint on their hand, make hand print inside a heart, hang up). My students had to tell me what they learned from the book. I wanted to share their thoughts because I can see that they really got an idea who he was-a wonderful man!
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr....
wanted everyone to be friends
was a nice man
marched, sang and talked to people in the hot and cold weather
died very badly by a mean person
didn't ride the bus
could sit anywhere after a person sat in front
worked for a church
helped people get along.
