The time has arrived! Character Building for African Centered Scholars is available both as a trade paperback and as an e-book! As you requested, I am running a CONTEST to give away some copies! The first 7 people to comment on this post will each receive a free e-copy of Character Building for African Centered Scholars. (If you are one of the lucky winners, please leave a review on Amazon!)
Even those who win copies may still want trade paperbacks too, so here is all of the info for where to snag your copies. (Also, you can check out the awesome Amazon previews!!!):
Again, thank you for your support, and I will be posting lots of great free resources for the semester soon, so be on the lookout!
Would you like to have a simple, fun, and interactive way to teach your children African centered moral and spiritual principles in a way where they can easily understand and apply them?
I am excited beyond words to announce that I have released a book series titled Character Building for African Centered Scholars. The first two books are for Grades 1 – 4 and Grades 4 and Up. The following books in this series will expand more in detail on the ideas covered in the main books or add to them.
In Character Building for African Centered Scholars, your students will learn character building principles from Ma’at, Iwa Pele, Nguzo Saba, the Adrinka Symbols , and more! The many sacrifices that we make to educate our children are for one reason and one reason only: to shape them into successful, critically thinking, and independent adults with good characters. Each book is fun, interactive, and written in a way where it serves as both a textbook and a workbook! I’m so thrilled and you will be too!
As I begin to collect items for our indoor container garden, I am finding some very helpful printables and lesson plans.
Herbs in the Classroom: Begin a small herb garden with an egg carton or Dixie cups.
Herb Identification Worksheet: Identify summer herbs with this neat free printable. Some included are dill, rosemary, and basil.
Start a Pizza Herb Garden: plant herbs that your children will use to make a pizza!
Herbs for Kids: What’s Safe, What’s Not: From WebMD. St. John’s Wort, for instance, is not okay for kids. Many herbs are. Lemon balm for instance, calms anxiety. (Use herbs for medicinal purposes at your own risk/benefit.)
Sensory Herb Garden Handout: Which herbs have the strongest smells and tastes that children can enjoy? Use this handout to better understand the sensory aspect of your herb garden.
I hope you find these helpful. Also, here are some generally helpful kids’ gardening printables:
Plant Parts: Parts of a plant.
Plant Growth: How a seed grows.
Plant Measurement: Track plant growth with this free printable.
