Monday Linky from Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers and Kathryn from Book Date!

Women's History Month

March is Women's history month.  Here are some books you can read with your kids to celebrate this month.

These inventors run the gamut from young to old and have invented some of the most beloved things.  Chocolate chip cookie anyone?

This book has some amazing women from Carol Burnett to Dolores Huerta.  One page is art and the other is a one page informational article.
It's a must read.  I hope to be a rad American woman too!

Some great women for kids to learn more about:
Sonia Soto-Mayor, Supreme Court Justice
Maya Lin, American designer and artist
Dolores Huerta, Activist
Sojourner Truth, Preacher and Activist
Lucille Roybal-Allard, Politician
Toni Morrison, Writer
Sandra Cisneros, Writer
Elaine Chao, Secretary of Labor
Rita Moreno, Actress
Maya Angelou, Writer
Hilda Solis, Politician
Oprah Winfrey, Actress and Business woman
Rigoberta Menchu, Nobel Peace Prize
Amy Tan, Writer

Did you notice they're all women of color?  
Latinas, African-American and Asian women 
have all made significant contributions to history!  
My students will be researching these amazing women!!!
