Last week we spent two days learning about the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It is so refreshing to me that my students think the segregation laws were absolutely absurd. They looked at me in disbelief when I told them that black people couldn't eat at the same restaurants as white people. They give me hope for the future.
This is probably too late for most- but this is what I taught last week. link here

We were SO lucky this week!! Nick Bruel the author of Bad Kitty came to our school. He read us Bad Kitty and Poor Puppy. He also talked about how he writes his books and took questions from the kids. He was AMAZING!! I know this experience will stay with my students forever. They were so impressed to meet a REAL author/illustrator!
