I love January! Peace, kindness, goodwill, MLK remembrances. You really can start to see the good in all of us as the new year begins. We've only been back for 2 days since the long holiday break, but I could see real changes in my students. As we talked about the first gift of character, the gift of love, I could see that they really got it! They were actually feeling it, and showing that they cared for each other. It somehow felt different this year.
As we kicked off our Martin Luther King Jr. unit, my students surprised me with a song they had just learned in music class this week. ("Sing about Martin"), made even more beautiful by their sweet little voices.
