Teaching Diversity Through Children's Literature

Teaching diversity in our classrooms is one of the most important things we can do!  Children's literature can often be the bridge for making connections for our young students.  Integrating these stories throughout the school year is key.

Please note that this post contains affiliate links in which I make a small commission to support this blog. 

We often start the year off with an All About Me unit.  This is the perfect gateway into taking about how we are all alike and we are all different!  Here some of my favorite picks to share with my students in August and September.

February lends itself to talking about friendships.  I love that so many children see their friends for who they are inside and out!  These are two of my favorite stories that celebrate friendship despite our differences.

Integrating multicultural literature throughout the year is essential if we want to build a community of acceptance, compassion and tolerance.  I believe sharing these stories helps our students make connections to different types of people who may or may not look like them.  Then when you have truly made these connections, children can then develop empathy for others.

I hope you'll join me in teaching diversity through children's literature!
