Longfellow Read Aloud: "Just Ask!"

Lions Love Books! 

It's the end of Developmental Disabilities History & Awareness Month, but every day is the right day to include and celebrate our students with disabilities! #AllMeansAll 

We put the call out in our PTA Facebook group for students who would like to help us do a Longfellow Read Aloud of Just Ask! by Sonia Sotomayor and illustrated by Rafael López.

Thank you to our awesome Lions readers and their families!

¡Gracias a nuestro maravilloso equipo de traducción 
por nuestro video en español!




Longfellow Reads "Just Ask!" – English


Longfellow lee "¡Solo Pregunte!" - Español 
**********

About Just Ask! from our Longfellow Bookshop:

"Feeling different, especially as a kid, can be tough. But in the same way that different types of plants and flowers make a garden more beautiful and enjoyable, different types of people make our world more vibrant and wonderful. 

In Just Ask, United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor celebrates the different abilities kids (and people of all ages) have. Using her own experience as a child who was diagnosed with diabetes, Justice Sotomayor writes about children with all sorts of challenges—and looks at the special powers those kids have as well. As the kids work together to build a community garden, asking questions of each other along the way, this book encourages readers to do the same: When we come across someone who is different from us but we're not sure why, all we have to do is Just Ask."

 


Attention 5th Grade!

Check out the 5th Grade webpage for lots of information around yearbooks, t-shirts and fun!

Centennial Time Capsule Project

Join our historian, Naphar Isley, and help preserve Longfellow history for future generations of Lions! 
*Time Capsule project – Create a centennial time capsule that students, families, and staff can contribute to so future Lions can open and learn about us! We can get creative about how submissions are accepted, and just how and where the time capsule will look and live. 
* History Web Page – Create an online space for Longfellow history! This will start as a page on our Longfellow PTA site. Ideas include history, timeline, and a repository for photos, stories, videos that students, families, staff, and the whole Lion community can contribute to. 
 
Please join us, thanks! Email info@lblongfellowpta.org
