Get ready for Martin Luther King Day with some hands-on, engaging sight word practice in this interactive emergent reader. Each page of What Would Martin Luther King Say? contains a predictable sentence about common phrases Martin Luther King would say. Every sentence is missing the word “say” and it is your students' job to complete the sentences. Students will cut apart the letters to spell “say” (included), then unscramble and glue the letters into each page to correctly spell the sight word. Picture support is included throughout the book, which provides valuable scaffolding to help young learners read with confidence and success.

Your students will LOVE learning about Martin Luther King while creating this sight word book and will want to proudly read it again and again. Interactive Sight Word Readers are a great, inexpensive way to build a personal reading library for each of your students.

Preparation is a breeze with Interactive Sight Word Readers. Each page in the book is formatted to print two-to-a-page for quick and easy collating. Simply copy the book, cut to separate, and place a staple in each half-sheet booklet. Copy the letter page separately and cut down the middle to provide each student with a strip of letters to fill in their sight word books.
