Martin's Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by Doreen Rappaport and Bryan Collier
The students really enjoyed the book, had many questions, and offered their own information about MLK as well.
To assist with making the lesson more meaningful and concrete we used Jenna's, over at: http://www.speechroomnews.blogspot.com, Martin Luther King Jr. Language Activities that can be found in the link below at her TPT store:
You will not be disappointed with this Activity Packet and it's not too late to use it as a follow-up lesson to today's holiday.
Enjoy the rest of your day & take care,
