This week in the Jackson Library, fifth graders learned about Dr. Martin Luther King’s powerful, peaceful words used to spur change for equality. I asked them to think about things going on in the world and what causes are important to them. They wrote their own ‘I Have a Dream’ excerpts to convey ways they want the world to improve. Check out their poems below!

Last week in the Jackson Library, I read excerpts of the Martin’s Big Words book to third and fourth graders. We discussed the power of his peaceful, persuasive words and how Martin’s use of words caused laws to change to promote equal rights in America. They used the augmented reality app, WeirdType to use some of Martin’s words as art. Check out more about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the WeirdType/Pokemon Go app designer below!
