Use this craft to go along with the book Martin's Big Words (which is one of my favorites) or with another book that celebrates Dr. King (a list of suggested books is below).
Students can write about Dr. King's 'big' words that they learned from reading or they can write about their own ideas concerning Dr. King! Additional writing prompts include 'My BIG words,' and 'I have BIG dreams!'
