I am so excited to be writing this post and sharing, yet another wonderful book by Maria Dismondy!

  2. I teach Spanish speaking bilingual students in a culturally diverse school. We use literature, videos and other materials to learn about the many cultures in our school as well as the many Hispanic cultures represented in our classroom. Thanks for introducing me to this author!

  6. I teach in a school where our population is 97% Hispanic. I am Irish so on St.Patricks day I teach the students about my traditions and where I am from. I also love learning about my students and their traditions when we do a mothers day activity where students bring in a recipe they make with their mom. It is fun to see and hear about why it is a favorite meal.

  7. We also have a very diverse population (mostly Hispanic) and we have discussed where we come from, our traditions, etc. We also love reading books about different cultures. This would be a great one to add to our collection.

  8. We are an IB school and we celebrate diversity in many ways. We teach globally through planners and they must be written so that any school in any country could follow our same planner. In Florida we have a large Hispanic population.

  9. I talk to my students a lot about appreciating diversity. We talk about different cultures often, and how they make our country a better, more interesting place!

  11. As everyone else, I use literature. However, we spend a day near the beginning of the year discussing how special each and every one of us are. Each student has their own day and takes time to bring in something if they want and we celebrate them.

  12. I teach about accepting others' differences. Through classroom discussions and activities, students recognize the uniqueness of each person based on their actions and attitudes.

  13. I've been so blessed to have many unique cultures in my classroom and wonderfully supportive parents-willing to share with the class. I've also been blessed to be an inclusion teacher and have been witness to years when my class was super protective of our special angels. Definitely part of learning to show empathy!!

  14. I teach in a rural community and we don't have a lot diversity in my classroom. To help my students understand and broaden their world, we read many books and have great discussions. My students have learned so much and have a greater understanding of diversity. They amaze me with their insights.
