Martin Luther King Jr.

We have been reading these short biographies about famous people throughout history and this week we focused on Martin Luther King Jr.  America’s segregated history wasn’t that long ago, and because of people like King, we have progressed a long way. He paid for his beliefs with his life, and I think he’s important enough to be discussed and honored for his accomplishments.

Today we finished the BFG by Roald Dahl. It’s an adorable story about a little girl and the only friendly giant in the world becoming friends and stopping the terrible man eating giants from gobbling up human beans.

We are reading Charlotte’s Web. It’s a classic by EB White, who also wrote Stuart Little and The Trumpet of the Swan. It’s honestly one of the cutest books I’ve ever read and the kids adore it. We are reading the chapter today, so it would be a good thing to talk to your kids about how they felt.
