⭐What Other Teachers Are Saying:

  • I am always looking for material to teach throughout the year about POC because one month a year about the same famous people doesn’t give my students a full understanding of their roots. This was perfect. Thank you!
    -Aimee
  • Loved this resource for my 4th graders, it was easy to get out to the kids and I paired it with the book. The kids enjoyed learning about all the different people.
    -Kimberly
  • We used the Pinna App to listen to the book and complete a person per day for the morning meeting. My students are so engaged and I love the conversations it has created every morning.
    -Amanda
  • Loved this resource as a companion to the book. The students, paraprofessionals and myself learned so many new things with this resource.
    -Melanie
  • These pages went perfectly with the book and allowed writing opportunities for the entire month.
    -Miranda
  • This resource is such an invaluable supplement to Charles Smith’s brilliant book. Thank you so much for sharing it!

    Absolutely LOVE this resource. I purchased the book to have “in hand” to read each day with my students. The book is amazingly written and the illustrations are beautiful. So glad this resource pairs perfectly with it, and provides an opportunity for students to write about each important person.

    I really enjoyed this resource and so did my students. Very clear directions and paired very well with the book. Thank you!

  15. Cathy Gooding

    I bought this book way before I knew anyone had created a resource for it. I LOVE IT. We are creating our own books. We won’t be able to get through the whole book, but we are trying hard. I love the fact that the book has Black Americans that are rarely heard about. The sheets don’t ask for a lot of info but ask them to pick the important info out. I like that. It is their work. I have even told the kids they could draw pictures instead of writing the information out. Thank you for this resource.

  16. Danielle Schwisow

    Great resource to go with the book 28 days! I love that there is a digital and paper version

  17. Lora P.

    There were many people included that students had not heard of which was nice. We created a collaborative class book that shared what each student learned about their person.
