This week, we have been discussing Martin Luther King Jr. and his dream. It has been fun listening to all of my students' dreams and why it is important to treat everyone equally. We started our week reading Happy Birthday Martin Luther King and On Martin Luther King Day. After reading the book and poem and discussing what his dream was, I had the students write about their dreams.
Here are some examples of their dreams:
"My dream is to be a doctor and a doctor of a horse."
"My dream is to be a vet."
We read the poem A Box of Crayons and the book The Crayon Box that Talked. The students really started to understand that diversity is a good thing! We wouldn't want to see things only in black and white, but in color.
After reading the book and poem, we created our class box of crayons
Here is a poem we learned to help the students understand great than and less than.
We have continued learning how to answer math word problems. Today the students wore t-shirts with the minus and equal sign. I read the word problem, then the class had to place these students in the correct order.
Mr. Gator: Each student draws a number then they have to figure out which number Mr. Gator wants to eat.
I found these cute mailboxes and Target! In the mailboxes are envelopes with cvc words in them. They have to take the letters out and spell the word correctly. Then they have to write the word and draw a picture of it.
Parents, thank you so much for helping your child complete their penguin research project! They taught me many new things about penguins! They all did a great job!!
I hope you all have a great weekend!!
