I am very proud to make available to the TPT community my children's book called Bobby's Secret is Out. Hundreds have been sold already to school districts, individual teachers, parents, and friends. Also, I am grateful to have been invited to conduct reading workshops using my children's book.
In this inspirational story, Bobby and his classmates are asked a very important question by their teacher, Mr. harper. The question is, "How high can you go? Mr. Harper wants every student to know and understand they have great abilities. Therefore, their assigned project is to identify one talent, which must be presented to the class. Bobby, the main character, identifies a secret talent and it benefits his school and community. Because of a strong family, community, and educational support system, Bobby and his classmates are able to demonstrate their diverse talents at a young age.
This is a fantastic story that challenges and encourages all youth to identify and fulfill their purpose in life early. The content influences students to believe in themselves, regardless of their circumstances.
For your convenience, I have included two lesson plans with instructional activities in the back of the book. The first lesson plan was constructed to prepare students in ELA skills relevant to the content in the story and help students understand African American culture. The second lesson plan was developed to help students understand the main idea of the story.
In addition, Bobby's Secret is Out is filled with colorful illustrations throughout the story. It is a very large paperback book with medium and large print. And it is delivered to you in durable plastic.
You do not have to think about what type of instruction to implement during Black History Month. This is definitely one of the greatest lessons you could introduce to your students. To make it even more interesting, you could assign the same project to your students during Black History Month. How high can you go is a question all students must confirm in life. Why not challenge them now?
Finally, I've had adults tell me that Bobby's Secret is Out inspired them to use their talents, too. That is the power of this magnificent book.
It has forty-three pages. Allow three to five business days for delivery.
With Teachers in Mind,
