Martin Luther King Jr. - Guided Reading and Activities

Younger students understand reading about famous people when they were young because they identify with those similar in age. My Brother Martin is told by his sister. The story shows how Martin lived and reacted as a young child in Atlanta when a neighbor would not let his white children play with Martin any more. Students will use reading comprehension strategies as they listen to this read aloud. The rooms illustrated in this story are the actual rooms of Martin’s home. I have provided the website where students can take a virtual tour of each room in Martin’s childhood home. Students will fill in a graphic organizer, a two-column organizer I have made to describe what the family did in each and every room of Martin’s home. Students will then “synthesize” all of the information they have learned and write a letter to Martin as if he were still a child. (I have included a letter format). In Martin’s “I Have a Dream” speech, students can highlight words and phrases they understand as they read as a class to put them into a poem, (Found Poetry). I have included directions how to write a “Found Poem.” The poems and letters can be put on display to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. Or students can share their letters and poems at an assembly or parent breakfast.
