I am JJ: Reviewing the Teacher's Guide as I prepare to mail the first CANpaign books

I am JJ: Please continue to support the CANpaign.

I’m excited. This weekend, I returned home to prepare the mailing for the first wave of CANpaign books. I thought I’d make a quick video to show you the comprehensive 136-page Teacher’s Guide to Land of Not and to the 13 Words of Can. This Teacher’s Guide, which will be available free online to all teachers who receive the book during the CANpaign, contains lesson plans, handouts and resources that bring the book and the Can words to life.

We still have a long, long way to go to reach 1,000 schools, but I remain confident in our food allergy community that we will reach the goal by the end of October. Thank you for supporting the “1 book, 13 words, 1000 schools CANpaign”.
