It's that time of year...time to teach about Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Here's a sneak peak of what we will work on tomorrow. After reading Martin's Big Words, we will make a project with many of those "big words" from the book. Students will trace the words and then glue the sheet inside of a 12x18 piece of construction paper that is tri-folded so that the ends just meet in the center. On the outside, students will glue different color die cut handprints to the edges of the construction paper flaps so that they overlap as if holding hands. I love that is is kinder-simple, but very representative of what MLK stood for. What do you think? I will update with pics of how they turn out tomorrow...for now...here's my sample and an insert sheet download freebie.
On Friday, we will read Happy Birthday Martin Luther King and then make birthday cards as shared by 1st Grade with Miss Snowden.
**Updated! :) I thought you would like to see how the kids' versions turned out! Here are a few...
