Counting books are an important part of the balanced numeracy program. There are many good counting books to use as an introduction. This package will infuse counting books into your program while focusing on First Nations culture. The First People used nature and natural events of their daily lives to teach their children. Learning to count is no exception. This resource uses natural materials as the manipulative to reinforce counting. Also, learning to pronounce the numbers enriches the students' respect of the culture.
This activity is a good resource to use as National First People Day, June 21st, approaches or at various other times in your yearly plans.
