Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr lesson plans are here! Check out how we celebrate!
The book My Daddy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was written by Martin Luther King, III! So good!
I have been a fan of Kadir Nelson (the illustrator of this book) forever! I Have a Dream does not disappoint.
And the book we use for the close reading this week is Martin’s Big Words.
There are some good ones out there. Here are just a few.
Brain Pop has a great one. You can see that video by clicking HERE.
Reading Rainbow has a great video.
Here is another video…
And finally a little bit of Kid President!
Close Reading and Anchor Charts
We primarily use Martin’s Big Words for this anchor chart, but we added to it based on the information we learned in the video.
We worked on retelling the story.
Then the students created their own retell. You can grab the dove card by clicking HERE.
Students worked on making connections.
Students also working on inferring.
