Celebrating Black History Month

Black History Month is this month. 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.
Here is a site that includes some great worksheets to do with your children:  Black History Month Worksheets
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!

Annie Miller Burrell
Annie is a South Florida native who resides in Palm Beach Gardens. She is married to the hot guy she intentionally sat next to every week in class while pursuing her teaching certificate. After 10 years as a teacher in Palm Beach County she is now a SAHM to their two young boys. If you see her in the wild without kids in tow you will likely find her at the beach or a coffee shop curled up with a book or frantically creating a new to-do list. She loves raising her boys and works to find balance in her life by scheduling time with her girlfriends, leading small groups, and planning time alone with her husband. She always dreamed of being the perfect Pinterest mom, but has found that she is a little bit more of the A for effort type these days. Annie is passionate about women finding their people, gathering with purpose, and diving deeper in their relationships with each other. She is also committed to raising antiracist children and recently started to blog about her antiracism journey.
