The Reading About Diversity (R.A.D.) Series is a Kindergarten -5th grade program that is run by parent volunteers. The curriculum, designed by two educators with expertise in diversity and literacy, will help our students to better understand and celebrate our diverse world. At each grade level, five children’s books have been selected with related questions already prepared. Each book also includes writing and/or drawing extensions. Each lesson takes about forty-five minutes to an hour and takes place in your child’s classroom.
Do you beat yourself up for being a bad parent? There’s an alternative. Recent research suggests self-compassion may be a resource for resiliency. Explore these three small acts of kindness to build compassion for yourself.
