We read a wonderful autobiography this week titled Ruby Bridges Goes to School. One thing that was really cool about reading this book was that the author wrote the book about herself! Ruby Bridges is an American activist known for being the first black child to desegregate the all white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana in 1960. Although it was a very scary time for Ruby, we learned that she never gave up on her will to learn and was a very brave little girl. We wrote about the message of her book and shared it during Writer's Workshop.
I am so proud of these kindergartners for being able to understand and share the message from Ruby Bridges!
