Shelby's Learning Log

The 2nd graders @ Shelby's school use something called a "Learning Log". Lots of things are placed in this book...but my favorites are their letters back & forth from student to teacher/teacher to student. Below is one I'm sharing:

Dear Mrs. Wynk,
The book I read was The fight for Freedom. This book was mostly about Martin Luther King Jr. and other people fighting for rights and freedoms. I Like this book because Martin has big words to say to america. These are his biggest words Love, peace and don't fight with fist. The author really grabbed my attecion when Martin Luther King Jr. died because someone did not like Martin for stealing his freedom and rights. This story had a sad ending because the guy who shot Martin was happy but Martin Luther King Jr. was feeling sad inside. Today Martin is sad because he can not see that his dream came true.

Dear Shelby,
Wow! You wrote another powerful letter about a book that you are excited about! It sounds like you learned alot of Martin Luther King Jr. from reading this biography. What is the biggest lesson you learned from this famous American? What book are you reading now? Keep up the good work!
