Martin's Big Words

We are celebrating Black History Month during February!  This year, the theme of our classroom door decorating is black literature.

One of the most popular books in my class is Martin's Big Words by Doreen Rappaport. I get requests everyday to read this book!!!  So I decided to use this book as our focus.

I began by covering the door with some paper.

I copied handprints on brown and tan construction paper, and got the kids busy cutting them out!

Then I glued them all around the orange paper to create a border.

Then we worked on drawing Martin Luther King, Jr.  I found a FREE directed draw lesson from Mrs. Miner's Monkey Business {HERE}.  I followed the directions and the drawings came out fantastic!

Next I added the drawings to the door.  And then I added some of Martin's BIG words.

 I love the finished product!!!
