#FridayReads: There’s a Norseman in the Classroom!

Alexander Robinson Grade 1 teacher Fen Hsiao recommends There’s a Norseman in the Classroom!

I loved this book because it invites readers to consider kindness and inclusion in the classroom. One day a large, clumsy Norseman starts in a new classroom and is disruptive to the others due to his awkwardness,” explains Fen. “At first, the other children don’t appreciate his uniqueness and are quite annoyed. By the end of the book, they end up missing the Norseman, both in the ways he was helpful to them and in how they helped him.”

– On the first Friday of each month, Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District teacher-librarians and educators will be sharing their favourite books for students.
