My Students

My 2nd graders attend a collaborative, diverse, and creative public school in Brooklyn, NY. We teach our students to be intellectually curious learners, socially responsible citizens, and dynamic problem solvers.

I want my students to become socially responsible, civic-minded, respectful, culturally aware, and open-minded, flexible thinkers.

Part of being socially and civically responsible citizens is understanding the history, culture, language, art, and traditions of other cultures by which they're surrounded, and by gaining an appreciation for different art forms, languages, historical events, and types of expression. I am also teaching them to be responsible citizens and students, kind human beings, and all-around fantastic "bucket fillers"!

My Project

These books and materials will provide my students with resources for understanding differences, exploring different cultures, and becoming kind, respectful citizens of the world.

I want my students to learn and understand that what makes us different makes us unique and special.

I hope to use these books in conjunction with our school's new character education curriculum; I would like for each month of the school year to focus on a different "pillar" or value, and my students will use these materials to explore those values. Read-alouds, art activities, and community services projects will allow my students to gain a deeper appreciation for our community and our world.
