Highlights Include:

★The Six Cedar Trees: Colouring Pages- A black and white coloring page for each animal is included. Under each image is a one sentence description of the core competency the animal connect with in the story. For primary students, these are great ways to slowly introduce indigenous art, the Core Competencies, and the animals of The Six Cedar Trees. For older students, these make great early finisher activities, and can be included in the final Core Competency Self Assessment Booklet.

★Class Connection Activity and Posters- A full set of posters and a morning routine activity have been included. Full instructions are included.

★Animal “I CAN” Statement Posters- A set of class posters featuring the animals

are included, with corresponding “I CAN” statements.

★Interactive Read Aloud Information- Multiple pages of information on Interactive read alouds have been included, to help you get the most out of reading the story aloud to your class.

★Before, During, and After Reading Questions-

A set of questions to use with your students before, during, and after reading are included.

★Animal Table Cards-

A set of table cards have been included. These can be used for grouping purposes. Instructions are included.

★The Six Cedar Trees: Animal Sorting Cards-

Student groups sort the cards into piles according to their different traits. This is a great review activity for small groups. Full instructions are included.

★The Six Cedar Trees: Who Am I? Game-

This is a fun review game that can be played in partners or as a whole class. In pairs, students spread all of the cards in front of them, and take turns pulling the Core Competency and guessing the corresponding animals. Alternately, the teacher can pull a card, and have the class take turns guessing. I keep a stack of the cards on my desk, and pull them randomly throughout the day, or play a quick game with the class when we have an extra five minutes to fill.

★The Six Cedar Trees Foldable Set-

Two different foldables have been included, for students to include

information about the different animals. These make fantastic additions to Interactive Notebooks, and can be used as review tools. All templates, answer keys, and student examples are included.
