Martin Luther King Day!

We've been learning all about Dr. King!  We always start off with this book:

Martin Luther King Junior Portraits:
I just have to share these because they are so great! I have done them the past 4 years.   Even though it is a template for the kids to cut out, all of the Dr. King's portraits came out differently!  I'm not huge on cutting and pasting art projects, but these are so worth it. Do you have the book, "Martin's Big Words"?  It is a FANTASTIC and touching book.

I don't have the pattern for you, but I did find it for sale {here}

I'm not sure what happened to Dr. King's other eye! This is the joy of 1st grade teaching!  

I Have a Dream Writing:

I was inspired by all of the fabulous activities on the Primary Prospective blog for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I made this "I have a dream" paper so it could fit black and white pictures of my students (I wanted it to look like it was from Dr. King's era). The students had to write a dream they have and it must help others/world in some way.  Click here for that.  Here is my example (for privacy reasons, I cannot show pictures of my students).

MLK Booklets:
As we learn about Dr. King, we also learn many different vocabulary words. We write about the new things we learn in a Dr. King Booklet. You can get that booklet {here}

 Here are some great web site links:
Brainpop Jr. (search Martin Luther King Jr. and they have a great video posted) {you must have a membership...but it's a to your principal).
Youtube has a great video that shows parts of his "I have a dream speech".

Oh and if you're in the upper-grades, don't forget Natalie's pack!

Love the creativity! It doesn't matter how uniform an activity is, students always "make it their own!" I wondered if you had united streaming: discovery videos because Martin's Big Words is available in a "Reading Rainbow" style movie as well. I use it every year because for some reason, I don't have that book in my massive collection!

Those lil guys are classic! Love how each one has their very own personality (which probably closely matches its creator:).
We agree-that is a fabulous book!

Love the creativity! It does not rely on how uniform a pastime is, college students always "Make it their very Pay Someone To Do My Dissertation own!" I questioned if you had united streaming. They truly are very unique! Love the labels you have got revealed for the paintings.

I puzzled if you had united streaming: discovery movies because martin's massive phrases are to be had in an "Analyzing rainbow" style film as nicely. I use it every 12 months because for some motive they truly are very exceptional! Love the labels you've got published for the artwork. Remarkable idea!

All due to the fear of being charged a hefty amount for the project completed. The prices set at us have been pay for assignment kept low due to the clients being students in most of the cases, who have to pay from their own pocket money.
