World Children's Day

Happy World Children's Day, the perfect day to hand the reigns to your students, to think about how much input they have in what they are learning, and to make it a point to value their voice and provide opportunities for them to use it. 

As I was scrolling through Twitter this morning I felt inspired and hopeful because children are finding their voice and using it in powerful ways to help humanity and the planet. Here are just some of the incredible resources and examples of student empowerment that I hope will inspire your classroom practice and encourage every day to be World Children's Day!
