Supporting Indigenous Resources for Inclusive Learning for Primary Elementary School Students

This learning resource has seven different activities using the reading strategies: Visualization, Connection, Meaning, and Compare and Contrast.

This unit was created to extend the ideas within the story; allowing students to connect and recognize who holds them up and who they hold up, promoting Inclusive Learning and powerful understanding

You Hold Me Up, a great read aloud to model and recognize respectful behaviour when establishing a 'kind' classroom.

Also included is a take-home mini-book template the students can use to create a personalized You Hold Me Up book.

This Unit is featured in my Blog: Infusing Indigenous Literature

Article: "I can hold up my dad... but my arms might get tired"

Most of the response pages are provided with lined and interlined options. Choose the response pages that best suit your class or lesson focus.

This activity is suitable for Kindergartens to Grade 4.

Other Indigenous resources available are:

To obtain a copy of this book and others like it, I recommend checking out Strong Nations, an online bookstore supplying indigenous books. Not only do they have an extensive selection, they provide themed book bundles for all age ranges.
