Happy Friday! This week seemed to last forever, it must be because I’ve been longing for this long weekend (I know, I know, we just got back from break, what can I say, I like to sleep in).
We are off on Monday for Martin Luther King Day, but I usually recognize the holiday in the classroom on Tuesday, we talk about why we didn’t have school, and it leads into our activities for the day. On Wednesday I gave you some ideas for recognizing diverse characteristics, and this freebie fits perfectly with those activities. This easy little MLK Activity is from Little Miss Kindergarten. All you have to do is print a couple of copies and pull out your multicultural crayons. Each child chooses a crayon and colors in a pair of hands, then they write their name underneath. When all of your students have filled in their hands you have a great classroom poster to celebrate the diversity in your classroom.
Make sure to download this great activity, and take some time to say a little thank you for the people you know who stand up for what they believe in .
