I am a future elementary school teacher who loves to read and try new books both inside and outside of the classroom. This blog is dedicated to cataloging and keeping up with all the books I would like to use in my future classroom as well as ways I can use them in my classroom!
Its Okay to Be Different is wonderful book to show kids that we are all different in our own ways and some ways that we are different. Maybe some of us are missing teeth, or need some help from friends. Maybe we wear glasses, or need some wheels to get around. Maybe we have lots of hair or no hair. Its okay to talk about our feelings! There are lots of positivity and good feelings to be spread throughout this book. I think this would be a wonderful character development book in kindergarten. I would have my students create a version of themselves to finish the sentence "Its okay to be....." and make a drawing to go with it and their name. This is something that I would also love to hang these in the hallway to show our classes unique features and show the rest of the school it is okay to be different!
