Diversity in Action

Throughout this school year in Room 20, we have been celebrating diversity. Our diversity takes many forms ~ our culture, ethnicity, race, language, gender, learning styles, levels of motivation, likes and dislikes. The forms of diversity are endless. The challenges we face are to learn about our classmates and to accept and embrace these differences unconditionally.

Earlier this year in Room 20, we read The Colors of Us by Karen Katz. This book celebrates "the differences and similarities that connect all people through the eyes of a little girl who begins to see her familiar world in a new way." On Friday, Room 20 students celebrated our own differences and similarities by photographing the "colors of us!"
