Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today we celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. since we have the day off in his honor on Monday. I was pleasantly surprised at how many of my kids already knew who he was! We began by watching a short video on United Streaming then reading Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King! The kids talked with their shoulder partners about the things they learned from the video and book, then we recorded them on our circle map.
Then, we wrote about what we learned on this cute graphic organizer from Susan's MLK mini unit {you can get it here} and made her even cuter {and easy!} craft to go with it.




Short and sweet today...I have a baby to snuggle and LOTS of stuff to prep for next week :). Have a great weekend!
