Hi! I am a librarian in an elementary school. I wish I had learned this when I could have signed up but since I didn’t I was wondering if there was any kind of recording of this that I could see and learn from. Thank you!
Yes, we’ve posted the recording online here: https://www.leeandlow.com/educators/articles/celebrating-dia-at-school You can watch and also download the full toolkit. Let me know if you need anything else!
