I Like You Just The Way You Are!

Help me give my students quality diverse books, multicultural skin tone crayons, and some positive sayings to help them deal with what they are seeing and hearing in our country today.

My Students

While we finished the school year learning from home, we do not yet have word on how the next school year will begin. If we do not start from home, we most likely will have a mix of at home and in school learning.

My students come from low income homes and need all the resources that we can pull together and put into their hands.

They are eager learners who appreciate what we can do for them.

Currently, In the midst of all that is going on in the country, I am looking for resources to celebrate their diversity.

My Project

Whether we learn from home or we are back together in our classroom, our students need affirmation and celebration of who they are.

These quality multicultural books, multicultural skin tone crayons, and positive sayings will help create a positive, accepting atmosphere to our learning.

Children need to see characters who look like them in the books they read. Children need a wide variety of skin tone crayons to use when creating their personal artwork. Children need to see and read positive, affirming messages as often as possible.

Join me in creating a welcoming and affirming learning environment for my students.
