Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Printable Book for 2nd – 5th Grade
While most children in this age range will be able to read the booklet on their own, you can also read this booklet to your children or students. Reading the story to them is also a great option if you would decide that you wanted to use the booklet with the longer story for younger children.
The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. printable book also includes pictures to color on every page. This can be a fun addition to reading the story.
If you are looking for a shorter or less challenging story, the free Martin Luther King Jr. Coloring and Story Book for Preschool – 1st grade has less text per page and is more general information.
The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Printable Book for 2nd – 5th Grade includes
– A cover page that can be colored
– Six content pages – all of the pages in the booklet are half sheets of paper, so two pages fit on each standard 8.5×11 piece of paper. These pages include a story that I wrote telling about Dr. King’s life. This includes information about his work and life, Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott, his “I Have a Dream” speech, his death, and his legacy.
– A page where students are challenged to share what they can do to help others. Each page includes a border that can be colored in as well.
How to Put Together Your Martin Luther King Jr. Printable Book
You have a couple of options for putting together your booklet. I don’t know about you, but I love having options. I declared myself our family’s Ideas and Options Generator. My family decided it’s like my job title. I’m the IOG of our house.
So, here are the options that I have for you on this reader:
1. Print it on two pages using duplex printing
If your printer allows for duplex printing (or you are comfortable with how to manually do this with your printer – it’s different on all of them, so I can’t really give you advice on this), you can print the first page of the book on one side of the paper and the second page of the book on the other side of the paper. Then, do the same with one piece of paper for the third and fourth page of the printable.
You’ll have the front and back cover, which is a study activity page, on the opposite side of the page of pages one and six of the story. Your other page will have pages three and four of the story on one side of the paper and pages five and two on the other side of the paper.
Once I had my two double-sided pages ready, I just folded them in half and made them into a book. I used my long reach stapler to fasten them together in the middle. Easy peasy.
Or, you can always just fold them together and then use a regular stapler to staple the fold together. Or, you can hole punch the pages and use yarn to tie them together. So many options.
2. Print the pages single-sided and cut them apart
If you don’t want to mess with double-sided copying or you just don’t want the pages to be back-to-back, you can print out the four pages of the printable and cut them in half to get your eight-page book. Then, just assemble in order and staple them together.
