When I was searching for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day activities this weekend I stumbled onto the Scholastic's Mini-Books website. It's a nice resource for educators and parents. The website offers a ton of printables to help kids practice reading and writing skills. Most of the printables are available through subscription, however they do offer a few free printables.
Here's a nice one I found for young kids about Martin Luther King, Jr. -
