We are gearing up for all things MLK this week, how about you?! Normally I wait until after my students complete their activities to show you what we did, but I know some of you may like these resources and videos before starting your week!
We will be reading a lot of MLK books throughout the week. There are soooo many out there that are really good! Katie and I added this MLK nonfiction reader to our unit so that our kids could have something to use throughout the week while completing all of their activities. I love nonfiction readers because I can print them 2-to-a-page and put them on my table groups for my kids to share!
Here’s how I print two-to-a-page if you are interested!
Also, I made these flap-ups that can be used with the nonfiction reader. You can grab that HERE!

We are definitely going to chart words that tell us about MLK. I’ll use sticky notes so that I can use this chart again!
I’ll let my kids generate our words, but here are some great ones to get them started! You can grab this freebie HERE!
Once we’ve charted and discussed, it will be time for a little directed drawing and writing about this hero!
We will also spend a lot of the week talking about how much of an impact Dr. King’s words made on our world. Here’s a video of Martin’s Big Words that we will watch!
