I Have a Dream {with a Freebie!}

Holy smokes - it's January! Holy smokes - it's 2015! How did this happen so fast? 
This week, I started diving right into our unit on a great American hero, Martin Luther King, Jr. 
To start the unit, we begin with a schema chart. As the kids share an idea, I write it onto a post-it {yellow for What We Know and green for What We Want to Know} I keep this schema chart up throughout our study so we can refer back to it, add to it or clear up misconceptions we may have started with!
Then, over the next few weeks, I slip in a bunch of projects, activities and discussions to further expand their knowledge of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the importance he's had in American history! 

Here's a peek at some of what's included! 

I think the kids' favorite activity is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Puppet {with excerpt of his famous speech!} It's great practice for their reading fluency!
My 1st grade nephew had a little too much fun while working on his fluency! 
There are TONS more goodies, too so make sure you head over to TpT and check it out! 
Or, you can read more about what's included {here} over on my blog.
