Today we started to talk about Martin Luther King Jr. And what better way than to start with a word from the fabulous Kid President?!
We ended the day by talking a little about what MLK did for our country and why we had the day off school yesterday. We talked about what MLK stood for and how we can be like him in the classroom. Here's a few of the ideas we came up with:
Treat everyone like it's their birthday!
The world would be an amazing place!
Share and use your words.
Work it out with a smile and shake hands on it.
Ask a friend to play. Give a friend a hug.
It's OK to be different. Celebrate it!
Like playing baseball vs. hockey. Or swimming vs. drawing.
Look at what's on the inside for what matters!
