Being a 3rd grade Professional Problem Solver during Christmas is hard work. Luckily, I’m good at what I do. I’ve been asked to help figure out cool gifts for kids this Christmas. Here are some of the things I like, so I think other kids will like them too!
1. Beacon Black History Box
EDUCATIONAL KITS WHERE BLACK HISTORY MEETS LITERACY & S.T.E.A.M.
WHAT COMES IN A BOX?
A picture book about a relatively unknown Black historical figure and corresponding 3-4 S.T.E.A.M. activities. These activities are based on the curriculum framework from five different states. The activities relate to the historical figure’s contributions, career, or field of study.
I love getting things in the mail and I love getting books. This book subscription box is all about exposing children of color to literature, characters, authors, and stories that are reflective of them. How cool is that?
Each month a box filled with African American children’s books and other educational tools comes right to your house. Just Like Me! Book Box is for ages 0-12.
Ok, so I love Freckle Box. They have such cool stuff like personalized puzzles, lunch boxes, and stickers. Puzzles are a great gift for Professional Problem Solvers. They help you learn concentration, figuring out patterns and problem-solving.
