Product Description
How can we foster safe and respectful conversations about all family structures in the primary classroom? In 2015, it became legal in the USA for gay and lesbian couples to legally marry. I believe that as educators we must provide opportunities for thoughtful conversations about different family structures in our classrooms. These conversations not only inspire children to talk about their own families but normalize and make our children feel equal and supported. Whether students are from a traditional nuclear family, a divorced family, a single parent family, an extended family, or perhaps a two-mom or two-dad family, it is imperative that we ensure our students' voice and perspectives are included int the conversation regarding family structure.

This resource is designed to support a guided conversation on same-sex marriage through an age-appropriate read aloud called "Worm Loves Worm' by J.J. Austrian. It includes background information, key vocabulary, connections to Anti-Bias Education and social justice standards, a stereotype activity, responding to reading activities, and extension activities.

Thank you for supporting equality and inclusion in the classroom. "It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength." – Maya Angelou
