We read a book about his life and his dream. Then during Learning Centers, we read The Crayon Box that Talked, by Shane DeRolf. We discussed how important our differences are and how our differences make us special! Then we made our own special box of crayons!!!
Wouldn't it be terrible? Wouldn't it be sad?
If just one single color was the color that we had?
If everything was purple? Or red? Or blue? Or green?
If yellow, pink, or orange was all that could be seen?
Can you just imagine how dull the word would be,
If just one single color was all we got to see?
Martin Luther King Jr. fought for love instead of hate.
Our crayon box has all the colors for us to celebrate!
