This week is the start of African American History month. At my school, we have a culminating African American Heritage Celebration. In class, we started our American American heritage unit by reading Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman. In class, we used this book to learn about main character, setting, sequencing story events to retell the story, and then drew portraits of Grace. It was neat for the students to draw portraits of Grace because they had to notice Grace’s skin color as they chose crayons to use. They also wrote reasons on why they thought Grace was amazing. I just love this book!
