December is a rough time of year for anybody who’s feeling sad or left out. That makes it the perfect time to share We Belong, with its message of belonging and inclusivity.
You could also print out this lovely mini-poster and display it, using it to jump start a discussion on belonging. And if you teach in an early childhood classroom where pretend play happens, don’t forget to give kids opportunities to see themselves by providing dolls with a variety of features and skin tones. Thank you for making sure every child knows they belong!
