Jodi's Classroom Favorites

A collection of my favorite picture, short story, and chapter books that I hope to house in my classroom library!

Mixed Me!

Mixed Me! - Taye Diggs, Shane W. Evans

Mixed Me gives us a glance at the everyday adversity that biracial children might face. Mike is full of confidence, and faces his struggles head on - with humor! This book is another exciting way to introduce new cultures and heritages in the classroom. I would love to read this book when discussing bullying or self-esteem. I would accompany this text with a color mixing activity. This is an easy way to incorporate a hands on experience while teaching acceptance.
