*Please note: This resource includes links to YouTube videos, so ensure you and your students have access to YouTube before purchasing. Although great care has been taken to ensure all content is appropriate for the stated grade levels, each classroom is unique and it is recommended that teachers review all content prior to use. I recommend embedding the videos to avoid ads and other content that may be inappropriate. Instructions for embedding the videos are included and it should only take a few minutes. Also, keep in mind that any links to third-party content may be changed or removed by the content owner. All links are reviewed regularly; however, if you find a broken link, please let me know so I can update the resource accordingly.
*Please note: Ensuring all students are accepted and proud of who they are as important to the growth and development of children. Unfortunately, certain rights are still controversial to some teachers, parents, and administrators. Please ensure you review all material and ensure you have the support of your school and families before using any resource you believe may be controversial for your classroom.
