1-2-3 Come Learn About Martin Luther King With Me

Will you be celebrating Martin Luther King Day on Monday?  If so, I think your students will enjoy this quick, easy and fun craftivity.

mlk activities, martin luther king activities, martin luther king facts, martin luther king crafts, martin luther king bulletin board ideas, martin luther king writing prompts, jaunary bulletin boardsThis Martin Luther King “flip-the-flap” booklet is very versatile, and easy to diversify for your students’ skill levels, making it simple enough for preschool, while being challenging enough for older students.

No worries; as a huge time-saver, I’ve included a chronological list of 95 interesting facts about his life, so you can learn right along with your students.

The factual information makes it a breeze to make a timeline if you want.

Perfect for your non fiction studies.

There are several “fact flap” booklets to choose from:

* Use the black & white graphic pages with no words, for little ones who simply color the pages. The pictures will prompt them to explain the graphics by sharing what they’ve learned.

So that you can create a booklet with fewer pages for little ones, I purposely did not number them.
This also allows you to check comprehension for older students as they collate their pages in chronological order.

(See the last oval in the photo with the pen.)

Children read the simple sentences then color the graphics.

When everyone is done, as a whole group activity, call on students to read a page aloud.

* As another booklet option, I’ve also included a template with 3 blank half-pages on a one-page pattern.
Run these off so students can write and illustrate their own booklets.

The bitter cold with minus temperature wind chills have subsided for a while, so it's time for some fresh air.

Love the sound of winter melting, with the promise of spring though quite far away, still in the air...

"Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face." - Victor Hugo
