Grade 2 Literacy, Heritage & Identity

Teachers will use the picture books I Lost My Tooth in Africa by Penda Diakité and Throw Your Tooth on the Roof by Selby Beeler to explore the concept of a tradition and to find out more about the traditions followed when children lose their teeth. I Lost My Tooth in Africa tells the story of Amina who is visiting relatives in Mali and what happens to her when she loses a tooth there.
