What educators are saying

Excellent, comprehensive resource for the novel Fatty Legs. The activities are engaging and simple to implement. Highly Recommend.
I read Fatty Legs as a read aloud. It was useful to have additional resources so the students gained a better understanding of the events in the novel.


Supporting Indigenous Resources for Inclusive Learning for Elementary Students

This product is also available in a bundle: Fatty Legs and A Stranger at Home BUNDLE, that includes the sequel novel unit, A Stranger at Home.

Comprehension strategies used in this unit are: connection, visualization, question, infer, and transform.

For Distance Learning - Teachers can assign the Reading Response Booklet to students using Google Slides or PowerPoint (for Microsoft Teams.) The booklet is editable, and students type their responses in editable text boxes. Online copies of Fatty Legs can be found at Epic!

In-class Environment - The hard copy novel study unit was created to support a single novel read-aloud, should a class set be unavailable. Student work booklets have been designed to extend the understanding of each chapter. The unit has a duration of about three weeks, appropriate for grades 4-7 and integrates Language Arts and Social Studies learning outcomes.

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.
