Below is some of the literature my students and I have read together :)
As a class we spoke about inequalities and what is means to discriminate against other people because of skin color. Students make connections to Black Lives Matter and strongly declared that everyone is worthy of an education.
Students read Water Protectors for the super hero project. They explored how people are heroes by standing up for what they believe is right.
"The portrait made Parker feel powerful because it reminded her of herself" -Liam 4th grade
We read this book during our poetry project and explored different style of poetry that included figurative language such as personification.
