Make a Martin Luther King, Jr. Timeline
Kids may cringe when you ask them to write a book report, but when you show them how to do one in an nontraditional way, like in an accordion-style timeline, they'll have much more fun expressing their creativity. During Black History Month, have your child read a biography about Martin Luther King, Jr. and then ask her to create a pictorial timeline depicting some of the major events in his life. She'll not only get great reading comprehension practise, but she'll also practise her writing strategies as she learns about the inspiring life of Dr. King.
