Kid’s Corner Brings Sikhs Stories to Forefront of Virtual Teaching

The impact that diverse and inclusive teaching content can have on building greater awareness and understanding

A new teaching initiative has just been launched called the Sikh Coalition’s Kid’s Corner. During this difficult time when many schools are closed, this virtual series brings Sikh children and their classmates together to encourage learning through diverse literature, music, and art.

Super Satya is ready to have a super day, including finally conquering the tallest slide in Hoboken.
But things take a not-so-super turn when she realizes her superhero cape is stuck at the dry cleaner.
Will she be able to face her fears, help her friends, and be the true hero everyone knows she is?
Super Satya Saves the Day, introduces Satya, a precocious Sikh superhero, who is ready to save
the day, even if she doesn't always know it right away! 

They launched their first virtual session with author Raakhee Mirchandani, who engaged elementary school-aged children in a reading and discussion of her book, Super Satya Saves The Day. Next week, they'll be hosting author Bhajneet Singh who will read his book, Be Brave My Love. As the weeks progress, will also be bringing in artists and musicians to lead learning sessions for kids online.

Education Director, Pritpal Kaur writes about this initiative:

“Through the Sikh Coalition’s work, we have seen the impact that diverse and inclusive teaching content can have on building greater awareness and understanding. We hope that in these uncertain times, Kid’s Corner will encourage learning for children across communities nationwide.”
