I am so ecstatic! My school does a Black History Month contest each year. Each class chooses a different person to focus their Black History Month lessons around and then creates a display about that person to show their learning. And guess what? My class won for Kindergarten! Sprinkles to my cuties' hard work! Here are some pics of our display.
Whole Display about Matthew Henson, the first African American to go to the North Pole

A close up of our dog sleds and igloos
Matthew Henson traveled to the North Pole on Dog sleds and lived in an igloo. We made the dog sleds by tearing paper for the dog's fur. My cuties really understood they needed lots of fur to stay warm. Then they traced their hand to make the sled. The igloos are made from paper bowls with cotton glued on them.
Here are a few other classes' displays.
Here are a few pics about our Martin Luther King Jr. study. We learned this song from Welcome to Room 36.
Then we created these precious mobiles. I got this idea from Angela at The Daily Alphabet. It is in her Black History Month Pack on TPT.
Maya's says "I have a dream for kids to be nice."
Zoey's says "I have a dream for the cat to have a home."
Here is a pic of them all hung up in our room.
While we're talking about February, I just had to share one pic of our Valentine's Ladybug Glyphs that I posted here.
So precious! Have a happy day!
