January is such a busy time. We are beginning a new year. Many of us just returned from Winter Break—rested, rejuvenated, or at least refreshed when it comes to re-embracing our pre-holiday routines of school and work. When a new year begins, people tend to jump right in, armed with hopes, resolutions, and dreams for a better year ahead.
January is also a time of more celebrations. Most notably, schools and teacher lesson plans focus on to Black History Month and Martin Luther King’s birthday. Through activities, literature selections, social studies curriculum, and so much more, teachers are deftly weaving important learning objectives into their instructional strategies to acknowledge both Black History Month and Martin Luther King’s birthday. Teacher Peach is focused on these celebrations, too.
