Teacher Review of Giraffes Can’t Dance
by Jamie Turak
It’s easy for students to overlook how much they’ve grown and achieved since the first day of school.
That’s why Debbie Bejune loves using Giraffes Can’t Dance as a tool for self-reflection in her classroom at the Roeper School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Students can easily relate to Gerald the giraffe, who dreams of dancing but is afraid he won’t be good at it.
Tune in to Debbie’s book review to see if Giraffes Can’t Dance could help you offer a lesson on self-reflection and perseverance to your students!
