Martin Luther King Jr. Day GIVEAWAY

January is slipping away quickly.
January 20th, Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be here shortly. 
 I find it a great time to share and discuss civil rights and equality. 
 I always try to steer the discussions towards good people doing good things for everyone.
Below I listed some of my favorite MLK Jr. books that we share in our classroom.
The kiddos always complete a terrific informational writing piece about this hero and special day.

This last book is one of my favorites for this MLK Jr. Day... The Crayon Box That Talked.
We complete this activity to wrap up our great week.

If you're looking for a fun, informational mini unit or writing idea... leave a comment below and I'll draw a winner for the MLK unit AND a winner for the Write On file on Sunday night!

I would really love to use this unit with my class, our school is trying to bring social justice to some inner city kids. I think this would be a great tie in for MLK day.
