A few days ago I gave some book recommendations and Martin Luther King Day Lesson ideas. Today I have a few Martin Luther King Day Coloring Pages. As I said a few days ago, the books that are great for preschool/kindergarten to teach about Dr. King include
My First Biography: Martin Luther King, Jr. – This is a great easy to read and understand book. It is excellent book for preschoolers/kindergarten/first grade. Great for teaching MLK Jr and his contribution to American history.
The Story of Martin Luther King Jr – This little boardbook uses only approximately 200 words to tell about the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. and to explain, in simple terms, how he ended segegation in America. Perfect for preschool – but, great for Kindergarten too! Easy to read and understand.
I am Martin Luther King, Jr. (Ordinary People Change the World) -This book is more for first or second or even third and fourth grade. It is almost “comic book like”. Its style makes it a nice read for an older level but again is very easy to understand and explain. My 2nd and 4th grader both enjoy this book.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
