Pre-K and MLK

Preschoolers are wiser than we give them credit for.  Read about this mom learning from her pre-k student, and you’ll know what I mean.

MLK, Jr. through my four-year-old’s eyes.

I know of preschools that don’t teach about Martin Luther King, Jr. and Black History Month because “the kids don’t get it” or “it’s beyond their level”.  But it’s not.  In fact, I find my students to be wiser than some adults on matters of race, sex, gender identity, marriage, divorce, death, etc.

We need to stop saying “they won’t understand” and start saying “let’s see what happens here.”  They get it.  Now, it’s our turn.

Yours,

Miss Teach
