During Black History Month I am sharing several posts highlighting different people and events along with book ideas and printables to help you bring Black History alive with your children. Although February is Black History Month, Black History is actually just HISTORY and can be taught at any time of the year! There is SO much to learn, one month a year would never be enough!
I originally was going to publish a post entitled “Black History Picture Books for Kids” and as I got deep into my research I realized that post would be WAY to long considering all I wanted to include! So, I decided to break it down into smaller posts.
Our next post features Rosa Parks books and printables.
Click to see all of our featured Rosa Parks. books here on Amazon.
Click here to see a Google Doc with all of the books, featuring in BOLD the books that are written by Black authors.
Click here to download a printable to take with you to the library or to file away so you can remember the books. You can also use this printable as a way to record books your children read. I love visual reading lists!
I like to let the books lead the teaching and let our discussions stem from the books we read. I don’t use many printables with my kids, we mostly spend our time reading and talking. I do, however, LOVE these free coloring pages from Classroom Doodles!
