It can be challenging for teachers to find quality activities and program resources – especially culturally appropriate, anti-racist support for young children. Particularly in February as we celebrate Black History Month, we are reminded to delve into resources that lift up and celebrate the Black community. However, the importance of celebrating the uniqueness and commonalities of children extends well beyond a few weeks each year.
When evaluating classroom resources, look at the source. Websites and publications crafted within the community, by people who live the experience, are more likely to represent a more culturally accurate view of their reality.
The following resources could be a starting point for developing your own teaching collection.
