I am a student teacher and I searched for hours today for a sequence of 5 or more lesson plans that were culturally relevant, met common core standards, and fit for kindergarten. I almost did a dance when I found this website because I was so happy to finally find something that met all 3 of these criteria. THANK YOU!

I was looking for an interesting way to teach Autoboigraphies to my 2nd graders. I look forward to trying this approach out. I already know they will love it!
Thank you,

I just wanted to express that your website was the only website I found that provided kid friendly material that an 8th year old child could read and easily understand. Your website will make this project an enjoyable one.
Thank you
