MLK, Jr. Day

By Randee Bergen

Prior to moving to Grand Junction in 2005, I taught kindergarten on the Front Range. According to the social studies curriculum there, kindergartners were to recognize three important U.S. figures--George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King, Jr. So I did my best to help five- and six-year-olds understand why these men were so important.

It wasn't an easy task.

Today, I share with you one kindergarten student's writing. I think he sort of got it. I'm also sharing some art work we did to ensure that the kiddos would always recognize and remember MLK, Jr.'s face.

Enjoy!
