Martin Luther King Jr. and the 100th Day!

I hope you had a wonderful three day weekend!  We came back today rested and refreshed and ready to learn!  We started the day off learning all about Martin Luther King Jr.  We've read these books...

Martin's Big Words

Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Happy Birthday Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King, Jr.

We also saw a short video from National Geo Kids:

Finally, sweet Erin Eberhart so graciously shared her MLK packet that is absolutely fabulous!  We wrote about our dreams!  Here are a few...
"M D F M L K B U"
R.J. said "My dream is for Martin Luther King Jr. to come back alive."

"i have a jrem that evree budee wil have a home."
Kenzie said "I hav ea dream that everybody will hav ea home."

"My dream is pelpel be nis to me."
Jackson's dream is for people to be nice to him.

"I d w to nobld to ge h"
Mary Margaret's dream is for "nobody to get hurt."

During centers we shifted gears into the 100th day of school!  This special day is coming up on Thursday!  Here are a few pictures of the collections sent in from home!

J.J. counting out his 100 macaroni noodles!

We have our collections hanging in our room!

Puff balls, acorns, marshmallows and beads!

Cereal, beans, legos and corn kernals!

Cheese balls, Q-tips, and noodles!

For my teacher friends, here is a sneak peak of a Valentine I made for the class!  They turned out pretty cute! :)
Happy Birthday MLK Jr.!
Happy Tuesday!
