Second graders had fun discussing hair in the Jackson Library after reading the Bluebonnet book, Crown. We discussed the vocabulary and main ideas in the story; from the history of the do-rag/durag to the theme of confidence. Then we discussed confidence and what that has to do with getting a haircut. Some kids created hair-dos using Toca Hair Salon during check out.
Last week in the Jackson Library, first graders learned about Mae Jemison from the book, Mae Among the Stars by Roda Ahmed. I like how it is a biography written like a narrative for the younger reader. It talks about not letting anyone deter you from reaching your goals and dreaming big dreams. After the story, the kids put together a little booklet about Mae’d accomplishments (from The Mailbox). Follow Roda here! #BlackHistoryMonth
