To kick off the start of a new school year, we have several new reading kits available:

We have updated our Reading Power Tote, and it’s better than ever. It was put together with the help of Kathy Eades, District Literacy Coordinator. This kit contains 30 Aboriginal titles (up from 18 previously), and includes a copy of Reading Power: Teaching Students to Think While They Read by Adrienne Gear to make for easy lesson planning.

Eaglecrest Books are a set of primary-leveled books that reflect experiences of First Nations children involved in cultural activities and in everyday life at home and school. Our 4 reading kits contain up to 24 sets of 6 books per kit, and come with running records and activities relating to each book.

The Northern Learning-to-Read Series was specifically designed to teach reading skills to children in Canada. These Loon books explore Aboriginal and Northern Canadian themes with humour and illustrations that reflect contemporary daily experiences. The 3 different primary-leveled kits will serve as a great supplement to any reading program, and also come with running records and activities relating to each book.

The Grade 4 Metis Cross-Curricular Unit provides opportunities for all students to engage with Metis creative expression and explore the culture of the Metis people. Our Metis Culture Kit contains 3 CDs, 3 DVDs, a red sash, infinity flag, and 5 books, including a teacher’s resource book that contains 8 lesson plans.

I encourage you to browse our catalogue online for these kits and other resources.
