Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in the Primary Classroom
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is such an important holiday. It should not only be celebrated during January. Teachers need to make sure that they are teaching in a way that all students feel included in classroom activities. When you read picture books, be sure to include books that are culturally diverse.
