Supporting Indigenous Resources for Inclusive Learning for Elementary School Students
This product is featured in my blog! To find out how I use this unit in my class, follow the link: https://www.infusingindigenouslit.com/post/and-along-came-trickster-tales
This unit is based on the Scholastic series, graphic novel set, Tales From the Six Nations, created by Chris Kientz and Kay (Ionataiewas) Olan. The stories are not included in this unit, but can be found here.
These tales are perfect for integrating reading strategies and Indigenous literature with a whole class using one read aloud book or in smaller literacy groups. I personally used this unit in my literacy centres (Daily 5 ) routine. It worked well as the students quickly understood the tasks and could complete them independently.
This unit is suitable for grade 1 (with support) and grade 2, 3 ,4 and 5. With eight books/activities the unit could take between 2-3 weeks.
Reading strategies used in this unit to explore the tales are: Summary, Visualization, Connection, Compare and Contrast and Infer.
Included is a 11-page student response booklet, answer key, and assessment rubric.
This unit can be printed out in its entirety as a student response booklet or individually to support a particular reading strategy or book.
The Tales From the Six Nations included in this unit are:
How Chipmunk got Stripes
How Birds got their Feathers
Bear’s Race with Turtle
Raccoon and the Little Crayfish
How Birds Found their Songs
How Rabbit and Owl got their Looks
The First Game
How Bear Lost his Tail
