Our Pre-K class combined two great activities in one! They spent their circle time talking about Martin Luther King Jr and the impact he had on our country. Ms. Shanice told the children all about his famous speech and how just a simple dream can change the world. She closed the circle time by asking the children an open ended question, "what is your dream?"
After asking a child an open-ended question, allow quiet time for them to think before responding to your comment or question. Young children often need extra time to decide what to say and how to say it. Try to use open-ended questions to start a conversation with your child and not just to gather information. Asking children these questions is just as important as discussing our country's history with them!
