Join The Flipgrid Virtual Field Trip With Sharon Robinson, Inspired by the Dream: Rising Up to Activism!

We are excited to kick off our 2021 Library and Virtual Events at Van Meter.  

Every week, I put together a schedule of events including read aloud's, Chapter Book Friday, special virtual visits with authors, illustrators and lots of experts, and we always include the amazing Flipgrid Virtual Field Trips.  
You can read all about the Flipgrid Virtual Field Trips here in this post
This week the Flipgrid Virtual Field Trip is Inspired by the Dream: Rising Up to Activism with Sharon Robinson, daughter of baseball legend Jackie Robinson.  

In January 1963, Sharon Robinson turned thirteen the night before George Wallace declared on national television "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" in his inauguration speech as governor of Alabama. It was the beginning of a year that changed the course of American history. Join Sharon as she shares her story of finding her voice in the fight for justice and equality and get inspired to become a young activist too!

You can register for this event here.  This link can be shared with our virtual learning families too. 
In this post from August 2020, I wrote about how we would be using this weekly calendar, and others throughout the year, to keep us organized for our face-to-face and virtual learners.  If you'd like to use the template for Our Library and Virtual Events, you will find it in the post.
