Martin Luther King: A Book to Help Explain Social Injustices of the Past to Little Learners

A Lesson for Martin Luther King

Looking for a book to share with your class about Martin Luther King?  Explaining the social injustices of the past in a developmentally appropriate manner can be difficult.  This book describes a childhood incident in Martin Luther King’s life that will help little learners begin to develop an insight of the inequalities that were accepted by many at the time.  Children will immediately recognize how unfair it is that young Martin’s friend Bobby is forbidden to play with Martin and that they must attend different schools.

The book is one of a series of books about the Childhood of Famous Americans.  The story is beautifully illustrated.  The Book is a Level 2 book of the Ready To Read books.

I have a FREE Add the Room resource to share with you.

I love “Roam the Room” type activities for little learners.  This one was especially fun for me to create since I love fall and pumpkins.  I like that learners count the seeds on the pumpkins to determine the addition equation.

I hope you and your learners enjoy this activity.

Welcome to Kamp Kindergarten

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Pull a chair up to campfire and help yourself to some marshmallows and a roasting stick. I will tell you a little bit about myself while you are enjoying the marshmallows.

My name is Tami Steele. I have 35 years experience working with young children in Georgia. I have taught kindergarten and first grade. Most of my experience has been in kindergarten.  I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from LaGrange College, a Master of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and a Specialist in Education degree in Early Childhood Education.  The Masters and Specialist degrees are from West Georgia College, now West Georgia State University.

I am a staunch advocate of developmentally appropriate instructional practices for young children. I believe young children learn best by taking an active role in their learning through exploration and play.

I plan to use this blog to share my experiences with you and learn from your experiences you share with me.  I will be sharing posts of interest to teachers, parents, and homeschooling families.  I hope my posts will offer helpful hints and fun activities for little learners. I love books and plan to share posts about books. I will occasionally share posts about travel and recipes.  I look forward to getting to know you.
