Product Description
Supporting First Nations' and Native American Literature in the Classroom

Kookum's Red Shoes, written by written by Peter Eyvindson, and illustrated by Sheldon Dawson is a heartfelt story describing a little girl's experience before, during and after residential school.

This short story unit was created to support a single read-aloud book, should a class set be unavailable. It has a duration of about a two weeks of single 40 min lessons if all lessons are completed. It is appropriate for grades 4-7, integrating Language Arts and Social Studies learning outcomes.

Comprehension strategies used in this unit are: Summarizing, Connection, Visualization, Questioning, Infer and Transformation

The lessons are designed to be printed / photocopied into student work booklets but can also be used individually should the teacher want to focus on a particular reading strategy. An answer key and rubric is provided.

To obtain a copy of this book and others like it, I recommend checking out Strong Nations, an online bookstore supplying indigenous and Native American books. Not only do they have an extensive selection, they provide themed book bundles for all age ranges.
