Martin Luther King...The Crayon Box that Talked

This packet is writing for the primary student.  It begins by sharing The Crayon Box that Talked.  As you know in this story the crayons are struggling to get along.  Each one thinks they are more important.   Sound familiar???  Perfect for making the connection to what Martin Luther King fought against.  In the end the Crayons learn to work together and what a beautiful picture they make.  They same can be said for Martin Luther King's dream.
The packet contains two crafts for decorating.
Martin and the crayons can be used as page toppers.
Activities are arranged to provide writing, word work, and there is a booklet filled with informational text about MLK.  
Here are a few samples.

  Your class will love these activities!!

Snow Much Fun!!

 Check out these three simple but SO MUCH FUN packets.

The First Day of Winter is a delightful story by a familiar author Denise Fleming.  This story provides you the opportunity to discuss the Winter Solstice and it contains information about it.
So put this in your packet for December 22nd.

 My Flakey Friend is perfect to use with any of the 101 suggested snowmen stories there are.
Perfect for December through February.

 And one of my favorite for sequencing...I Wear a Jacket In the Snow.
The craft is adorable to decorate a bulletin board.
