Reflection: Adjustments to Practice 3rd Monday in January: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day - Section 1: Warm Up


Although the kids had fun with this activity, I realized that it didn't need to take away the time I had for the real lesson.  Rather than the warm up, it should be part of something else.  I think it was good that we talked about quotes so when I brought out Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes everyone was ready, but we almost ran short to complete the writing and sharing which wouldn't have happened by skipping the warm up.
