My class is getting ready to celebrate the great Martin Luther King Jr.  Our shelves are full of great literature. Discussions are beginning. How else can we bring Martin Luther into the classroom? With Martin Luther King Math, Activities and Songs, of course!

Art Hub

Do you know Art Hub on YOUTUBE?  We love this father and son artist duo (and sometime young daughter)  Every holiday, we spend a few minutes on a Friday afternoon doing one of their direct drawings.  Not only are these direct drawings adorable and collaborative but they help reinforce listening, following directions and inspires creativity for other art projects.   Check them out below.



Rise Up Song

Jack Hartmann is my "go to" when teaching Kindergarten and 1st Grade but some of his songs are for everyone and this is just one of them.  It has a nice rhythm, incorporates some actual black and white photos of Dr. King and celebrates peace. What student doesn't need a little movement break during the afternoon? (Hint:most of mine)


Martin Luther King Jr. Multiplication Color by Number Math Activities

Multiplication Color by Codes are alway a huge hit with my students! My kiddos love coloring and practicing their facts for fact power.  They usual get so fixated on the colors that they don't realize that they are reviewing their multiplication facts for mastery and fluency.  I use these sheets for morning work during check-in, early finishers , math centers of for homework.  

And if that doesn't sound like the greatest news ever... I recently gave this resource a "Spa Day" updating fonts and borders as well as adding student multiplication bookmarks to help support students that may need a little extra scaffold and differentiation.
