I have a dream......

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
 Just wanted to swing by & share some of the resources I am using this week to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. What a true American HERO!!! I'm just so thankful for his dream, courage, faith, and love!

P.S. Equality is spelled wrong in this video, but I still LOVE it!

 I'm planning on reading a lot of literature with my class about Dr. King! Here are a few of my favorite books!



 My sweeties will then take what they learned about Martin  Luther King and complete this bubble map.
 Then they will write up an informational piece about him using the facts on their bubble map.
 We'll also watch parts of the famous "I Have A Dream" speech and reflect on our dreams.

 I found this PRECIOUS idea from 1st Grade Decades on Pinterest...my newest online addiction. *side note*- You can follow my boards {HERE}!

I'm going to let my students write about their dream on the writing paper below & put it inside their book! Too cute!!
You can download all of these printables {HERE}!

Hope you have a wonderful week!! I am so excited that Thursday is our 100th day of school!! This year is just flying by!! I have a fun giveaway in store for you in a few days to celebrate!! Woot! Woot! In the meantime, I'm having a BIG MLK DAY sale in my TpT store! Everything is 20% off from now until midnight tomorrow!! Happy Shopping!!
