To celebrate Black History Month, we wanted to showcase a few of the famous African Americans we have working at our school. We had done this last year as well with different people, so this is the second edition. We asked some of our coworkers about things that they liked, and from that we wrote the book and formed the sensory, fine motor, and language groups. After reading the first line on each page, we would ask our students, “who is this?”. The voice output would respond “this is a famous African American at my school,” the repetitive line. Again, our students labeled the people they knew and would point them out if it was someone from their own room. Such fun!
