A Birthday Party for Martin Luther King Jr.


 This year for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, my students and I will be celebrating his great legacy by throwing a birthday party in his honor!  

They will make a paper hat craftivity:


(I also thought about having them draw pictures and cut them out to attach to real party hats.  That could be fun too!)


They will create gift boxes for Dr. King:


Read about his dream for the world with this mini reader (created with my clip art)!


Create a birthday "dream" banner:


And I have bulletin board idea that will look precious with these "bubble" letters:


Each student will also get a "goodie bag" of items that will represent Martin Luther King Jr.'s beliefs!  


The first 5 people to leave a comment will get this party kit for free!  
Thanks for reading, and thank you very much for your continued support, encouragement, and kind words!  They mean so much!

The party hat craftivity is appealing the way it is. We are a PYP school but my team decided MLK,jr Day was one stand alone we were definitely doing. I love how you've focused on it.

Just happened on all your stuff and I love it. I will be sharing this with my teachers in Brighton, TN.

Tracy Clouse said...

Oh my goodness! Your stuff is awesome. Your ideas are great. I don't have much access to materials. I'm in a little school with about 70 kids k-8 and I have 1st and 2nd. I can't wait to purchase some things from you.

This is a great way to keep an important part of American history alive :)
