PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Awareness and pride in our selves are important concepts for children to learn and embrace as they grow and develop. Karen Katz has written a book that I love! In this book, she writes about a mother and daughter observing the people in their neighborhood. Lena (the little girl) realizes that people are not just black, white, or brown. They are shades of beautiful colors such as gingerbread, coffee, peaches, and cinnamon. After we read this book, my students and I observe the colors of our skin and inevitably we realize that WE are all colors, too! I bring in real examples of skin color shades and we have so much fun deciding if we are gingerbread, peanut butter, vanilla cookie, or chocolate colored! After this discussion, I give the children multicultural paper or crayons and they create both a self-portrait and a representation of their skin color object. These pages are bound and put into a class book and we have a representation of who we are! In the end, we learn that we are beautiful and how boring the world would be if we were all alike! Tolerance and acceptance are beautiful words to use when teaching this activity!
Included in this packet are two styles of writing paper for your students to use. A simple fill in the blank choice or a more difficult sentence writing page is included. Both a color cover page that can simply be copied and laminated and a blank cover that your students may decorate are included. Full sized color examples of some of the children found in the book and examples of products that can be used for identification of skin color are contained in this packet. Word/picture cards are included to aid in spelling and can be used for your word wall, too! There is also a full color poster showing "We are Beautiful!"

We are beautiful!
