Supporting First Nations/ Native American Literature in the Classroom
This product allows users to create a class book or individual student books based on the story, My Heart Fills With Happiness,
written by Monique Gray Smith and illustrated by Julie Flett.
The story and final products are a beautiful way for younger learners/readers/writers to connect with the story while celebrating 'self' and each other as a community.
This activity is suitable for kindergartners (with invented spelling or scribed with an older buddy or adult) through to grade 3.
Other First Nations, Inuit, Metis Units available are:
When We Were Alone
Storm Boy and Frog Girl
Shi-shi-etko and Shin-chi's Canoe
When I Was Eight and Not My Daughter Bundle
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.
