I'm sure you have done or are going to do a bunch of school activities to celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. I love that this day gives me the opportunity to revisit peace and student gifts/talents, as well as the life of MLK. About half way through the year is when a few more friend issues begin to pop up, am-I-right? At least, that's how I feel in 4th grade. It's nice to be able to revisit the strength that we have together as a class.
This week, our school is beginning a kindness kick with the Be Kind Like Josh Foundation. The teachers have shirts and bracelets to hand out when a student is caught being "genuinely kind". I think it will tie in great with out MLK discussions as well. Love when that happens!
