Remembering Nelson Mandela in Your Classroom

As great man has left this world but we still have his wisdom. I'd just like to share a few of my favorite quotes from the late Nelson Mandela. 

We can also appreciate his legacy through his books... 
Long Walk to Freedom:                                      Long Walk to Freedom (Official Picture Book Version)

And through education - educating others of the values that he stood for. If you would like to do something with your class, these free Nelson Mandela - Historical Hero Reading Comprehension Activities are available as a free download from Rick's Resources (free for a limited time). 
Here's another one: 
(FREE) Quick Quotations: Nelson Mandela by the Peanut Gallery. Lets keep his legacy alive however way we can.

As we are on the topic of books for your classroom library, you can see my 10 Classroom Library Tips for helpful and creative ways to have the best library for your class.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
