After we read the story about MLK students then wrote about a dream they had. We brainstormed together and I wrote their thoughts on my cute little easel. Then we practiced giving reasons for our dream. Students then were sent back to their seats to write about their dream and provide a reason. Lastly, they of course had to make it FLASHY for the hall way so they could "teach" the rest of our school about Martin Luther King Jr. (this is how I motivate them)! ;)
Here are some of the MLK writings and crafts!
