Ojibwe & Cree
Four books available on the website of Manitoba Indigenous Cultural Education Centre (MICEC) help early years students talk about the weather, family, animals and their habitats. One book is available for older students in Cree or Ojibwe which takes readers on an adventure in a city.
Creating a song, or using a song to document the experience is another helpful way of demonstrating language use:
- Cree Literacy Network has a plethora of Children’s Songs
- As does the Gift of Language and Culture website.
- APTN also aired a television series for early years children in Cree
This website was developed by the Canadian Association of Second Language Teachers (CASLT) with funding from the Government of Alberta. It provides practical resources for teachers of Indigenous languages as well as links to teacher training programs and contemporary research on Indigenous language teaching and acquisition.
