Martin Luther King Jr. was a great, courageous hero. As such, we wanted to honor him with a post to help little ones begin to understand his importance. It is fairly easy to get children to understand the concept of dreaming and imagining things they wish were better, and imagining ways that you can help someone else. To help teach little ones about Martin Luther King Jr. this holiday, you can focus on how he saw and experienced things that he knew were not right and he believed he could help make things right. He believed and he had dreams on how things could be different. The Martin Luther King Junior Holiday worksheets we have today are writing prompts that are great for kindergarten, first or second grade. Before we begin, here are a few good books to go along with the activities!
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.
