There has been a lot going on in our world lately. One thing that I feel like cannot go unaddressed on Colorful Pages is the murder of George Floyd and the importance of Black Lives Matter. Another tragedy has struck our country with the murder of George Floyd. Part of our job as educators, families, and librarians is to call out injustice like this and help students have conversations around race, racism, and Black Lives Matter. All lives cannot matter until Black Lives Matter!
Due to current events, I have completely switched around my distance learning activities for my own classroom. It would be another injustice to my students and community if I just stayed silent as their teacher. So, we will be learning more about Black Lives Matter this week and continuing our many conversations around race and racism. I have seen many educators and parents take up a similar calling via social media. To help, I wanted to create something to launch on Colorful Pages that would be free and easy-to-use!
