Reading “I Am Malala” With 2nd Grade

Written by Anika Falcon, 2nd grade teacher

This week in 2nd grade we are reading “I am Malala.” Here are a few quotes about the book by 2nd graders.:

“Reading about Malala makes me a little bit happy and a little bit scared. It makes me happy because Malala shows that girls can do anything. It makes me scared that the Taliban is destroying her city.” -Zuri

Malala is trying to save her town. She wants peace. She wants to go to school. Malala is a lot like W.E.B Dubois. Dubois wanted black people to go to school and Malala wants girls to go to school. Malala and W.E.B Dubois both fought to make the world a better place.” – Meghan
