I love to teach this little lesson to my K kids.
Let me tell you why I do this story for MLK Jr. Day.
I read any non fiction books about MLK Jr to help my kids learn
about Dr. King as a famous man
who gave speeches and he helped people.But I have found that they don’t get what he actually did for everyone!
I found a way to do more than just teach the person,
but the actual message of Dr. King… EQUALITY…
which is much harder to get across to a 5 year old child.I use the classic Dr. Seuss book, The Sneetches.
You can check out this book here.
Does a star or lack of a star make anyone better or worse?
Not in the least.
No one wants to be Sylvester McMonkey McBean.
He is someone no one, I mean, no one needs!That is what Dr. King believed as well.I love this Sneetches app on iTunes as well.
We are going to do a few activities from www.seussville.com
(This site DRIVES me CRAZY because it takes forever to load stuff or search!
I love the content though…
So I am going to give you the most direct links I can so hopefully you can save some sanity!)

I also made a new MLK Jr. Day reader.
This is a duel book. One is a standard reader.
This pack is a win-win.
If you don’t use technology, you can still use this pack.
If you WANT to use technology but you are scared,
you can try with having an automatic back up.
And if you know how awesome QR codes are and love them like me,
then you will be excited to get your hands on this pack too.
There is even a test code on the cover for you to try before you buy.
