We are quickly heading into January and Martin Luther King Day will soon be here. What an important lesson to teach all ages but today I have some Martin Luther King Day writing Prompts for kindergarten, first or second grade. A few great books go along with these Martin Luther King Day Writing Prompts 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.

Martin Luther King Day Writing Prompts: Great for Kindergarten through second grade.
This packet contains 28 different fall writing prompts great to be used in kindergarten, first or second grade. As you know, kindergarten students do not really write much during the first weeks of school. Each writing prompts has 4 different pages you can use – one that has a picture with something to write, one they can write a full page prompt, one that you can cut the page in half and write a half page prompt and then one that the student can just draw. The drawing prompt allows the student to think about what they would write and put their thoughts into pictures. A picture is worth a thousand words! Pre-writing, writing prompts! The entire packet is 60 pages long.
