Black History Month is February. While we do not need to focus on famous black people during this month alone, it is a great month to put in some extra effort to highlight them.
The free color sheet provided by Here Wee Read is a great jumping off point. The blog here: http://hereweeread.com/tag/black-history
We are going to use it in conjunction with daily picture books. If your children are older, you can have them pick just one figure, or for younger kids find some associated crafts. We are book people so we shall read. I have some books in our own home library, but I also took a quick pic of the first round of books I snagged from the library. The Here Wee Read blog site also includes a ton of wonderful book lists that you can shop from or get title ideas from.
Also my boys love their “People” colored pencils and we have the 24 pack of crayons from Lakeshore as well. The Crayola pack is newer for us, but also good and they are now available in stores.
I hope this is helpful and feel free to reach out if I can help you in any way!
