I have a dream...

I love Martin Luther King!!! A) What a fabulous man with such a fabulous dream! He is such an amazing historical figure to talk about in class! and B) We get Monday off of school in his honor (for a teacher this makes him even more amazing!)

With Martin Luther King Day approaching and Pride Night (like an open house) I wanted something fun, yet personal for the kids to do to hang in the hall for the parents to see. I searched pinterest and didn't find anything I was crazy about, but I did find a few different ideas that helped me put together something of my own.

I knew I wanted the kids to write their "dream" because who doesn't love reading what a 3rd grader has to say? I also knew I wanted to incorporate the handprints because most of the activities I saw incorporated them and they all looked so cute!

I then turned to TPT and found the best FREE clip art...and not only did I find some clip art I found one of my new favorite sellers. He has amazing clip art and I can't wait until I get a few minutes to sit down and look through everything he has. I highly recommend checking out his store: ATLTEACHER

In the end this was my creation!! I think it turned out pretty cute and I can't wait to do it with my kids. In the center I will have the kids write their dream and on their hands I will have them write words that describe MLK.
If you would like a copy of the "My dream is" piece for the center you can get it from my TPT store HERE
