Welcoming Words: Her Right Foot Story Hour

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This event is organized by the Edward M. Kennedy Institute.

The Kennedy Institute invites K-3 classes to join us for our virtual story hour program, Welcoming Words. This one-hour program introduces young students to an important American symbol, the Statue of Liberty, and the welcome that she represents to immigrants. Together we will read Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers, a non-fiction children's book with a powerful message about the Statue of Liberty and her striding right foot. We will discuss how Lady Liberty welcomes diverse neighbors into our American communities and students will then be encouraged to create their own symbols of welcome for new friends.

Please note that this event requires an additional registration step. Please register for the Zoom link here. Once you complete the form, Zoom will automatically send you a unique Zoom link to your email.
