Diversity in Pre-K!

Help me give my students a library of books that will celebrate diversity and help teach us about others, as well as other resources that will be used in lessons and play centered around diversity.

My Students

Our preschool special ed classroom has changed drastically since March 13th when our physical campus closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We began distance learning on March 16th, and have been working hard ever since!

The world has changed in other ways in the last few weeks too, as the differences between us has been amplified in negative ways.

My Project

Our world is changing rapidly, and the end of this last school year stretched both teachers and students as we taught and learned from home through Zoom. The world is changing in other ways as well, as we are learning more about race, diversity, and inclusion.

Beginning in the 2020/2021 school year, our classroom will focus on creating an environment and curriculum that is inclusive for all learners, promotes diversity and anti-racism.

Books are a huge part of all learning, but specifically for early learners, as they allow us to bring in children and other characters of all races, family types, etc. My hope is that these stories will promote important and necessary conversations with my students, their families, as well as among our staff.

We have also asked for several toys and other resources to help create new and exciting lessons and play opportunities around diversity and inclusion in our classroom.

We don't know what school will look like in the fall, but regardless if we are at school in-person, or teaching via Zoom, I am excited to introduce all of these titles and resources to my students. The books will be read either in-person or over video on Zoom, and activities will be done at school (hopefully!) or instructions given over Zoom. With all of the unknowns happening right now, my staff and I hope to continue to connect with our students from afar using these materials to continue meaningful lessons and activities.
