My friend, Jackie, shared this beautiful resource with me called, Southeast Asian Art Prints, created by Teo Octavia from the Eastwind Books of Berkeley.
In elementary classrooms, you typically see Alphabet and Number Cards posted on the walls to help students learn their alphabet letter names, letter sounds, and numbers. For each card, there is a picture of an object that starts with that particular letter or number card. However, the pictures are not always culturally responsive.
Why have Q just stand for Queen with a picture of a white queen, when you can have Q stand for QQ ball - an ingredient that your child may get when their family orders bubble tea or makes a homemade dessert?
In addition to your American alphabet and number cards, you can incorporate these Southeast Asian Prints in your classrooms, homes, libraries, etc. to create a sense of familiarity and a spark for conversation among your students and children.
You can browse the prints here and order here.
