As the mama of a preschooler and a former 2nd grade teacher I know what little kiddos will get excited about! While children are putting together their family culture cube and playing I Spy: Flags of the World, you will have opportunities to help them develop pride in their identity and learn about the beauty that differences create in our world.Get It Now!
The why behind Ally Elementary Jr.
Research shows that children begin to develop racial prejudice before they are even in preschool. But you know what the research also shows? When children have parents, teachers, and caregivers who invest time into teaching them how to be an ally, they are more likely to take action when they see someone being treated unfairly.
I created Ally Elementary Jr. to help you take the guesswork out of teaching young children about bias, discrimination, and allyship. Ally Elementary Jr. is a concrete way to align actions with values of inclusion and anti-racism.Get It Now!
