MLK JR FELT STORYBOARD


Reading books and coloring pictures sometimes just isn't enough to learn about History.

Today we celebrate the birth of the great Martin Luther King, Jr and I wanted the kids to visually see and learn about him.

Here is our MLK story as it was told to our little ones.

MLK JR FELT STORYBOARD


I decided to ask the kids if this was fair? I asked what would make this bus ride fair?
While there were no right answers I wanted to know what they thought.
Below you will see the order Little Man and Little Lady thought were fair.

We continued to talk about the need for change. I told them what MLK did and where the most significant speech he gave took place.

Little Lady was quick to pick up our activity from yesterday and say "oh we have dreams right mama"
I knew they were understanding and this moment was important!

They enjoyed playing with the board and wanted to hear the story of what each piece represented. This will continue to be out for them to explore.

  2. This is just too cute, Ruby! And you're right - sometimes books are not enough. Especially for our young kids, crafts like this are a wonderful way for them to absorb and understand difficult lessons. Now if only I had the creativity and love for crafts that you did!

  3. This took a lot of work, Ruby. I love the attention to detail and that you asked your babies what they thought. Adorable as always. :-)

  4. Not only did the craft come out amazing but I loved hearing how the kids felt they should sit. So important to know their thoughts and explain to them history! You are doing a great job! By the way, Duke learned about Dr. MLK Jr. in Kindergarten and he was so intrigued by him that we also talked about him extensively at home!
