Students create writings, illustrations in honor of Dr. King

Fourth grade students in Carol Larca’s class recently created “I Have a Dream” writings and illustrations in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Students started their discussion of Dr. King by reading the book, “Martin’s Big Words,” by Doreen Rappaport. From there, students brainstormed ways they could help make the world a better place. Their ideas include:

Ben Lumezi: My dream is to be a police man. I will finish college and get a police job and help people. I want the dream to help.

Cameron Durr: My dream is to make the world a better place by recycling all I can. I want to recycle all I can so animals don’t get killed by plastic.

Addison Freiberger: My dream is to be a doctor. I want to be a doctor because I want to help the community. I will become a doctor because I will study.

The class is continuing their discussion by studying famous black Americans and creating research essays that will be displayed in February.
