'I Have a Dream' Mobile

Free | 3 pages|Grades: K, 1 - 5

An ‘I Have a Dream’ writing activity.

Help your students celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. with this ‘I Have a Dream’ Mobile.

Students complete four sentence stems (younger students may need to draw their response):

  • My dream for my community is…
  • My dream for myself is…
  • My dream for my school is…
  • My dream for this world is…

Once complete, they attach each cloud with their responses to the ‘I Have a Dream’ cloud using string or yarn. Hang the beautiful mobiles from the ceiling as a reminder for your students to never give up on their dreams!

Alternatively, create a bulletin board using all of your students’ dreams for the entire school to see! You might like to use our Good Friends – Letters and Number Pennant Banners to complete the look.
