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 Daily 5 (literacy centres) 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 and 4. 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 , Prediction and Infer.

Included is a 14-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 Chi-Jean Tales included in this unit are:

Chi-Jean and the long Winter

Chi-Jean and the Red-Headed Woodpecker

The Rougarou and the Fire

The Hunter and the lost Children

The Great Spirit and the First Animals

The Tamarack Trees

The Seagulls and the Whisky Jacks

The Hunter and the Wolf

This unit is based on the scholastic series graphic novel set, Trickster Tales: Chi-Jean and Other Metis Tales, created by Chris Kientz and Karole Dumont-Beckett. The stories are not included in this unit but can be found on the Scholastics website.
