Today was the best day yet! Today, we started by recalling what we learned about MLK. I showed the kids 2 eggs, 1 brown and 1 white. We discussed all the ways the eggs were different. Then, I cracked the eggs open to show the kids they were exactly the same on the inside. This seemed to be very powerful to them. I saw so many "lightbulbs" going off ~ it was great!
Finally, we discuss and signed our Peace Pledge (also in my MLK Bundle.) We promised to use kind words and treat others as we wanted to be treated. While everyone signed the pledge, I gave the kids the bracelets I made. They LOVED them! Here are some pics.
Funny side note: I allowed the kids to decorate their bracelets however they liked. One of my lil cuties colored his the same colors as the Philadelphia Eagles football team. As he showed me he said, "I colored mine like the Eagles. I really like them but my dad said they suck." Trust me, it was almost impossible to keep a straight face!!!!
Hope you are having a great week!
