My Students

My class has 3-5-year-old students, whose boundless energy and enthusiasm keep me on my toes! They are just starting to learn about the world, their ability to effect change in it and to form relationships. For many of my students, this is their first time in a school setting and a majority has special needs, though this does not stop them from learning incredible things. Watching children say their first words and form their first friendship never grows old.

My Project

In preschool, students become more aware and involved with the world around them. They start noticing and categorizing people and experiences. Providing opportunities for them to explore and value diversity at this age is key! Books that directly address differences and portray characters of a variety of cultures and identities are a fantastic way to do this.

As well as providing students with exposure to other cultures and identities, we want opportunities for all students' to celebrate their identity.

All student's in the class should feel valued for who they are and have a chance to see that identity reflected in the materials around them.

The list of books I am hoping to provide my students' with comes from Anti-Bias Leaders in Early Childhood Education. This site, facilitated by 3 educators experienced in both anti-bias work and early childhood education, provides resources for educators looking to bring anti-bias educational tools in their own practice. As well as providing resources to support this in my students, I am hoping to support my own learning through reading 'Leading Anti Bias Early Childhood Programs'.
