1-2-3 Come Write About Martin Luther King With Me
Getting students to WANT to write is one of my passions. It's pretty easy for me to whip together interesting writing prompts, because I LOVE writing. I truly believe that if you give students some creative, think-outside-the-box writing activities, they too will get excited and want to get started.
I've learned that having a list for students to choose from, is extremely helpful. Giving one a choice, seems more satisfying, and is a lot less overwhelming than to simply say: write about anything. Staring at a blank sheet of paper, can be quite inhibiting for most students, where as something specific, gets them started.
With that in mind, I put together a list of 60 writing prompts especially for Martin Luther King Day, and hope your kiddo's will find something that really interests them. Click on the link to view/download the 60 Martin Luther King Day Writing Prompts.
Yesterday, I posted a list of 35 of my all-time favorite quotes from Martin Luther King, and mentioned that many of these provide a great spring board for writing.
I thought it would be interesting to make some quotation papers for students to write on.
After they share their work, mount the writing on a variety of colors of construction paper and scatter on a bulletin board with a black background. Click on the link to view/download the MLK Stationery Prompts.
Finally, I had a request for Martin Luther King alphabet cards, so Stacy's preschoolers from Detroit, could play some letter games on MLK Day. Click on the link to grab some for your kiddo's too.
