I have the great, good fortune to teach a classroom of 3rd graders, where more than half of my students were born in different parts of the world. We are a Project Based Learning school, and this year, our PBl is titled; "I'm Your Neighbor, Celebrating Immigration in Maine". This is a wonderful unit which involves the sharing of immigration stories, mapping, cooking, music and global citizenry. It is a celebration of our diversity, learned with an open mind and a loving heart. There are so many things children need right now, as schools all over the country are starting to figure through what the new "normal" is going to look like. One thing I know, is how much children love to be read to, and how powerful a book can be. I seek to expand our classroom library with books of equity, books that share and celebrate unique perspectives, and books that create more connections for our classroom community. I also plan to include many of these new titles in a take home library, with a flexibility toward the possibility of distance learning so that students can read them at home with their families as well.
