Here are some quick, easy and fun craftivities for Martin Luther King Day.
Younger kiddos can simply do the craft, while older students complete the writing prompts.
The packet includes 5 activities.
I combine math & literacy, with the “Mystery on a 100 Chart” activity.
Students follow the directions and color in those numbered squares, which results in Martin Luther King’s initials.
The writing prompt is “You could always count on Dr. King . . .”
Children complete this on the worksheet provided, which comes in black & white, as well as full color.
I’ve included a finished sample for you to share. (See preview).
There’s also a snowflake craftivity (We are all the same; we are all unique like snowflakes); as well as two “danglers”.
The MLK initial dangler can be plain, or filled with dreams and goals.
The other dangler is a dove. It can stand alone for little ones to make. (The folding of the wings, is especially beneficial for strengthening finger and hand muscles), or add the writing prompt worksheet, which is folded in half.
One side is for the writing prompt, while the other side features Langston Hughes poem, “Dreams”.
Finally, I’ve also included a Venn diagram comparing Dr. King with President Obama.
Venn diagrams are an excellent way to introduce comparison & contrast writing.
Children can complete this worksheet independently, as a whole group, or with a partner.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping this little bit of craftiness, gets your students excited to write.
