We celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s speech and March on Washington today. After viewing excerpts from his famous speech, the children talked about what they heard and specifically about what his vision and dream for America was. I gave the class an overview of our history and social studies curriculum which we will begin in January.
Next, we spoke about how important to have intentions because they help you focus on the present and provide a guide to live mindfully moment-to-moment. Each child then chose an intention and created a small watercolor painting to place by the classroom door to remind them and others how they intend to be this year. Next time you are in the school, stop by and take a look.
