When I Was Eight and Not My Girl Bundle
combines two separate products featured on my page:
When I was Eight - Supporting First Nations' and Inuit Literature in the Classroom
Not My Girl - Supporting First Nations' and Inuit Literature in the Classroom
When I was Eight and Not My Girl,
written by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margret Pokiak-Fenton and illustrated by Gabrielle Grimard, depicts the struggles an Inuit girl experiences while attending a northern residential school and the difficulties she faces once she returns home. This is a younger child's version of the novel, Fatty Legs and A Stranger at Home.
This novel study unit was created to support a single novel read-aloud, should a class set be unavailable.
Reading comprehension strategies
used in this bundled unit are: connection, visualization, question, and infer.
Student and teacher assessment rubrics are customized for each lesson.
To obtain a copies of these books and others like it, I recommend checking out Strong Nations,
an online bookstore supplying indigenous and Native American books. Not only do they have an extensive selection, they provide themed book bundles for all age ranges.
