Product Description

**Be sure to follow my blog for ideas throughout the year: InfusingIndigenousLit.com **

This reading response unit based on the ominous Inuit Tale, The Blind Boy and the Loon, written by Alethea Arnaquq - Baril uses the reading strategies:

Prediction, Summary, Meaning, Problem and Resolution (with Opinion),

Connection, Compare and Contrast, Question, Create an Alternative Ending

This unit is developed to support a single read aloud copy. There is zero prep needed (other than photocopying) and has 10 different activities to support the story. All lesson instructions are included.

This unit supports the following BC Curriculum Language Arts '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
  • 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 Grade 2 and Grade 5.

This book and unit is featured in my blog: Infusing Indigenous Literature: Top 10 Inuit Traditional Tales
