Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is right around the corner, and that means we need to be prepared! This man deserves our honor and respect, so what better way to celebrate him than with Martin Luther King, Jr. FREEBIES, books, and resources?!
And of course we can’t forget about Black History Month as a whole!
First up, let me share that I love tying books into our math learning whenever I can. I always start by seeing what I have in my classroom library, then I visit the school library, and finally I visit our public library. Thankfully the books at our public library are often new to my students – so I normally cash in there! This month I will be integrating Black History Month and Martin Luther King with practicing fact power.

Here are a few of the books I intend to use:
- Jackie Robinson
- I am Jackie Robinson
- Sojourner Truth
- My Uncle Martin’s Big Heart
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
These books pair very well with my Martin Luther King Jr Multiplication Math resource. Talk about how math ties into everyday life, determine how far Martin Luther walked during some of his protests, or simply let students do the facts and color while you read. This works well for your 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classroom or homeschool students.
