Last year we got snowed in over Martin Luther King Day. Anna was really intrigued by him, and so to entertain her Lolly was trying to find a short video about him online, but there wasn’t really much out there for kids. Anna asked if she could make one. And Lolly said yes
before she realized how much work it would be!!!
Anna was a trooper and didn’t want to give up even when some of the words of her script were hard for her to say. They stayed in all day long recording and recording. And then they ended up with a really great video!
Unfortunately, not too many people online got to see it because MLK day had already passed by the time we uploaded it. But this year, we were reminded to unroll it early when we got this sweet note today from a kindergarten teacher. Here’s what she said:
Wow! Thank you Miss Anna! I am a Kindergarten teacher, and we are learning about Martin Luther King Jr. this week in school. I came to youtube to search for a video that would be perfect to show my students, and I found your video! We will be watching this in our class tomorrow! You did an awesome job, and I know my students will love this and learn a lot! You may be the next Katie Couric!
What a nice comment! Now Anna has accomplished her goal: when someone is looking for a video about Martin Luther King Jr. for kids, there is one to be seen. All her hard work has paid off!
Betchya wanna see the video now, don’t you? Well you’re in luck!
There. Now you know all about a great man. And you’ve helped Anna’s goal of having her video be seen by many people be accomplished. So thank you.
The Weeds wish you a happy MLK day (next week*)!
*We don’t get our Christmas card out in time for Christmas, but we sure are prompt with our MLK Day greetings!
