This week we have discussed Martin Luther King Jr. We discussed who he was and why we celebrate a day for him as a national holiday. It is so hard for them to understand people not liking someone because of the color of their skin. We did some role playing where we I separated them by boys and girls and told them they could not play together. They all looked shocked. Then I separated them by hair color and told them they could not play together. They started to giggle at this point because they thought it was crazy.
Next we watched The Sneetches. If you have not heard of this book by Dr. Seuss, you will love the message.
Lastly, we read several books on MLK Jr and wrote about him.
I love how the tie on this MLK does not discriminate with his tie. Half Alabama and half Clemson :)
We had super specials today so we only had half of a day to celebrate the 100th Day. We will finish some more activities on Monday.
We worked so hard today I feel like we have aged....maybe we look 100!
The kids were so excited about their 100th day shirt or 100th day poster they made!
Today we made our 100th day snack. We used a 100 chart so everyone could figure out if we gave them 10 of each item. If we gave them 4 they had to tell us - I have 4 I need 6. Not only were we working on one to one correspondence and counting to 100 by 1s and 10s, we also worked on making 10. It took some time but was worth the wait for our delicious snack!
We also loved the last treat Zero the Hero brought us!
