Celebrating MLK Jr.!

Such an important part of our history.  I really wanted to do something other than just read a few books and do a craft.  We did those things, but we also headed downtown for a celebration. We enjoyed a MLK marade. Yes, marade (march/parade).  What a fun day!

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Martin Luther King Jr., I Have a Dream, 1963







Here is a link for a MLK Jr. Printable Book that we used.  On the way downtown, the kiddos read and colored in this book.

We also watched a video on MLK Jr. .
