Happy Monday AND Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, friends! In honor of this special holiday, I wanted to create a meaningful way for the kids to read about and understand Dr. King and all the good he did in the world. When I found this book on Epic, I knew it would be perfect to do a guided picture book read aloud with! Side note: I am in love with this series of biographical picture books. They are the perfect length and not too overwhelming with info like some nonfiction picture books can be. I'm definitely investing in some more of these!

I'm sharing more about what's included in the unit below, but you can go ahead and check out the unit here too!
Since this book is available for free on Epic, each student has this opportunity to have a copy right at their fingertips (if you're a 1:1 device classroom) Here's what's included in this guided picture book read aloud:

Vocabulary Posters
I created three options for these posters. There are full size sheets, card size posters, and word wall strips

Vocabulary Frayer models for each vocabulary word 

Vocabulary Quiz with answer key

Graphic organizers

A Check for Understanding comprehension sheet that can be used as a quiz or a search and find answers activity.

A Constructed Response question sheet to practice finding text based evidence. This also comes with a text based evidence bookmark that students can use to have evidence terms to look at.

You can get a copy of this resource here in my TpT store.
