Martin Luther King, Jr. Booklet Freebie

Please don't hate me... I'm clinging to my last days of vacation. Tomorrow is my last day off. We go back to school Monday. I'm excited to get back to my kiddos and start on some fun units. But at the same time I'm enjoying staying up late and sleeping in. I really have to go to bed earlier tonight and Sunday.

It's been so much fun having this time to blogstalk! All the "first week back" pictures are so inspiring and motivating. Thanks for being there! I do love this blogging community!

My one little word for this year is CREATIVE. Since I chose that I figured that I better get started. So here is a Martin Luther King booklet for you. In the past I've had my students write about their "dream" hoping they'd come up with something insightful. Sometimes they did, but this time I'm going to start with a dream they have for themselves since they're still so self-centered ( I don't mean that in a bad way.), then move on to a dream for their family then the world hoping they'll better understand what a dream for the world means by that time. 
All you have to do is copy it, cut it down the middle, add in a few staples, and *presto!* you've got a booklet! Easy-peezy! Remember, though, that you only need to made half the number of copies as what you need since it's 2 per page. I'm mad at myself when I forget and copy 20 when I only need 10. But then again, you can also just file the extras for next year. Just click {HERE} and leave a sweet note if you grab them. You know how we all like those comments. Have a wonderful Sunday!
