This Virtual Professional Development session, led by Frieda B. author, Renata Bowers is based on the FBTWC Lesson Plan for the first book of the series, Frieda B. and the Zillabeast. Bowers appeals to the desire within a child to be safe and loved… and does so by helping a child understand that in order to be authentically loved and cared for, one needs to love and care for others. The story demonstrates: putting others first is actually a good kind of selfish. Delving into ELA and SEL objectives related to resolving conflict, this session will provide engaging and creative methods for helping each child better understand and internalize:
Through her national-award-winning Frieda B. series of picture books, children's author Renata Bowers has developed an engaging method for utilizing written story to inspire the human story within every child... to help each child believe in self (autonomy) and to be part of something good (community), even in the midst of challenging chapters (resilience).
The Frieda B. The Whole Child (FBTWC) ELA/SEL Toolkit & author-led PD is built on this method and book series. FBTWC provides an array of story-based resources to PK-5 educators for sharing with students, staff and families the beauty of using STORIES to move toward meaningful, relevant academic and social success... all the while complementing and enhancing the school's existing English Language Arts (ELA) and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) standards and initiatives.
Schools interested in making FBTWC (all lessons & resources) available to all staff are welcomed to purchase the comprehensive FBTWC Toolkit. Author visits, family events, private PD, staff team-building also are available. To learn more, visit FriedaB.com/ES.
