I'm Here...

I mentioned the book I'm Here by Peter H. Reynolds in my last post. Here's a great book trailer/companion video to it. Really speaks to the impact of the book. Check out his great work with Fablevision here.  Lots of great visuals, lessons, products and ideas for teachers.

Inclusive Schools Week

It's Inclusive Schools week and I've been having some great discussions with kids at all grade levels about what an inclusive school looks like, and the many meanings of inclusion.  We've shared stories, including I'm Here by Peter H. Reynold and One by Kathryn Otoshi and come up with activities to do together to try to understand how we are all different thinkers and learners.  I just came across this video, shared by a fellow librarian, and loved it too much not to pass on. Enjoy!
