January Focus: Asian History & Chinese New Year Materials & Books
Breakthrough Montessori

Ms.  Abigail has created language, art, and cultural materials for the classrooms to use this month. The requests for materials and books are below.  Please see the description for samples of the paper. 

 

This month, we have great news!  Our new parent center will house a SHA lending library of multi-cultural children’s books. To support this initiative, we are requesting two copies of each book for our Monthly Focus.  Starting this month, one copy will be donated to the school’s general use library, for guides to use in the classroom, while the other will circulate through our lending libraries, for families to share.  Our requested booklist will be posted on Konstella, with room for two families to donate each title on the list. Thank you for your support!

 

A brief synopsis of each book on this list can be found at socialjusticebooks.org, which provides curated anti-bias and multicultural booklists for children, adults, and educators.
