I teach kindergarten in South Minneapolis near the sight of the riots and George Floyd's murder. Many of my student's come from this neighborhood and represent many different races and ethnicities. After the protests began, I took some time to reflect on how I celebrate diversity in my own classroom; I had both successes and short comings. To be a more effective teacher, I knew I needed a more diverse library to serve my students. These books need to share stories that celebrate black culture and teach black children that they have a rich heritage of cultural, scientific, and artistic achievement. In addition, I wanted books that teach about racism to young minds. I added some titles to my wishlist that I think educate young children about big problems in our world and inspire hope and change. I also believe children learn heavily though play and I want to expand on dramatic play in my classroom. This will help my students use their creative and curious minds to learn about the ever-changing world around them through hands-on experiences and play. I bought a doll house along with some babydoll furniture for my classroom but I lack dolls for the students to play with. As an educator, I know the importance of having toys that represent all students. I want to add these diverse dolls to my classroom play set. This will allow my students to feel represented and accepted in the classroom which I believe is so important to the learning process.
