Lied STEM Academy families. #MyNameIsAnAddress, by

@ekuwah, inspired me to share about Ghanaian day names. I also highlighted books by authors with Ghanaian names!" - Ms. Carr (Twitter)

"My 2-3 grade summer program students have been loving your book...! We were inspired to write our own books. We used the story map resources from your website to plan. See the comments for some of their work so far! (All shared with permission)"

"The assignment was differentiated for students. Some wrote multiple sentences, while my newcomer+ students worked in their zone of proximal development by coming up with words for each letter."

"All of my students are multilingual learners, so many of them chose to include details about where their families are from."
