Let Freedom Sing!
A new year is beginning, which means it's almost time to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! To help prepare classes for our annual assembly, we have been reading books about the Civil Rights Movement with them. We've shared and discussed the book Let Freedom Sing with every class K-5 and one additional book, depending on the grade. We found a video of the author, Vanessa Newton, performing with the book and have had fun listening to her sing. We discussed ways both big and little to let our lights shine by showing kindness to others and doing the right thing, even when it's hard. How can you let your light shine?
