A civil rights tribute -- first-grade style

Zachary's first grade teacher challenged his class to memorize a portion of the famous "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King, Jr. Ms. Katzenmeyer sent home short and long versions of the speech segment, and I encouraged Zach to memorize the long one. As it turned out, Zach was only one of two kids to memorize this part, and he did a fantastic job! It was great to see his grade sheet come home with "Wow! Excellent! 100%!" written across the page.

Here's a video of Zachary doing his speech. He really rushed through it on camera...but it's obvious he knows the words!
