Happy Birthday Martin Luther King, Jr.

Tonight I wanted to share a few activities that I found on Pinterest for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday.  What did we do before Pinterest?!?

First is this cute activity from What the Teacher Wants.

Here's a poem from Just 4 Teachers:  Sharing Across Borders.
Next we have some super cute Martin Luther King, Jr. portraits from The Crafty Crow.  This site is a must to check out!


I love this idea of teaching diversity.  The kids drew a picture of their dreams, from Little Miss Glamour Goes to Kindergarten.

I love this idea from Mrs. Moore's Busy Bees.

Then there are several freebies from TPT...they are posting very small so here are the links to the author's stores! :)

Twelve page mini-unit from Erin Eberhart.

A poem called "Freedom, Freedom" from The Book Princess.

My MLK speech writing paper from Lidia Barbosa.

I hope you can use some of these ideas in your classroom.  Now I have to go watch One Tree Hill!  I'm so excited another season is coming on!  And please say a prayer for me tomorrow....I have an interview!  I'm really nervous!

***Hop on Over to Denise Clement's blog Rainbows Within Reach to link up your plans for teaching about MLK or diversity....I just did!
