Supporting Indigenous Resources for Inclusive Learning for Primary Elementary School Students
This learning resource based on the enduring story,
Awasis and the World-Famous Bannock, uses the reading strategies: problem and solution, connection, summary, and theme.
Also included are:
- a coding on paper activity
- a mapping/retell activity
- animal and ingredient English/Cree vocabulary mini-books
- English/Cree procedural recipe writing activity
This unit is developed to support a single read aloud copy. There is zero prep needed (other than photocopying) and has 8 different activities to support the story.
This unit supports the following BC Curriculum Language Arts 'Big Ideas':
- Language and story can be a source of creativity and joy
- Stories and other texts connect us to ourselves, our families, and our communities
- Stories and other texts can be shared through pictures and words
- Everyone has a unique story to share
- Curiosity and wonder lead us to new discoveries about ourselves and the world around us
The activity sheets that support this unit are perfect for students between Kindergarten and Grade 4.
Other Unit Suggestions:
To obtain a copy of this book and others like it, I recommend checking out Strong Nations, an online bookstore supplying indigenous books. Not only do they have an extensive selection, they provide themed book bundles for all age ranges.
