Supporting Indigenous Resources for Inclusive Learning for Primary Elementary School Students

This no-prep learning resource based has FIVE activities to support the story, Once in a Blue Moon, written and illustrated by Danielle Daniel. It uses comprehension strategies: Meaning, Visualization, and Connection plus 'Once in a blue moon...' activity to be used as a bulletin board display or class book.


This unit is featured in my blog: Infusing Indigenous Literature

Article: "Mindful? My mind is already full"


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.

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
