Supporting Indigenous Literature in the Classroom

This unit is featured in my blog: Infusing Indigenous Literature

Article: "Mindful? My mind is already full"

This reading response unit based on the story, Once in a Blue Moon, written and illustrated by Danielle Daniel uses the reading strategies:
Meaning, Visualization,and Connection

Also included is an activity to help students create their own, 'Once in a blue moon...' page which could be used as a bulletin board display or class book.


This unit is developed to support a single read aloud copy. There is zero prep needed (other than photocopying) and has 5 different activities to support the story.

This unit supports the following BC Curriculum 'Big Ideas':

  • Language and story can be a source of creativity and joy
  • Stories and other texts connect us to ourselves, our families, and our communities
  • Stories and other texts can be shared through pictures and words
  • Everyone has a unique story to share
  • Playing with language helps us discover how language works
  • Curiosity and wonder lead us to new discoveries about ourselves and the world around us


The activity sheets that support this unit are perfect for students between Grades 1 and 3 and could be used to guide discussions for kindergartens.
