Teaching Tolerance With Roald Dahl

My students need the book "The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me" by Roald Dahl to engage their imaginations and teach tolerance of differences.

My Students

I work at a Title I school that consists of mostly low-middle class families. Their families are all different with two parents, single parents, multiple homes, and some raised by grandparents.

Living in a rural area, my students are adventurers.

At home, they climb, jump, run, and play. They get lost in the farm fields digging up rocks and bugs, trudge through the forests in search of mushrooms and berries, and ride their bikes freely on the country roads. My students do not realize their families may be struggling to get by financially. They don't find it odd that some kids live in one house with more than one family, multiple houses, with their grandparents, or with just one mom or dad. They embrace childhood and the beauty it offers.

My Project

Supplies empower students to embrace the learning experience. If each child has their own copy of "The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me," they feel important and cared for. This is the first step to reaching children. At this level, something this simple gives ownership and builds responsibility.

"The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me," is used with reading response journals, that challenge children to dig deeper into character development, story development and author's purpose.

These are essential skills to the second grade curriculum. Additionally, the theme of the book teaches how to build friendships in unlikely situations. Mostly importantly, it teaches tolerance of differences.
