Building Metalinguistic Awareness in Young Children Using Children’s Literature

This resource, featuring 40 children’s books, provides ideas of how adults can use literature to build metalinguistic awareness skills in young children through quality interactions. This resource was created as a final project for one of my Masters classes.

Invitation with Holistic Learning Wheel

This is a template I’ve created for my internship in Kindergarten. A lot of the outcomes in K are covered through centres, or invitations, so this is like a lesson plan template for a hands-on centre. On the second page, you will find the Holistic Learning Wheel, to help you consider the 4 aspects of ECE that are explored.

Inquiry Lesson Plan

This is an inquiry unit plan overview for an Arts Ed outcome in Kindergarten. It focuses on the question “What is Art?” I made this as a project during a course focusing on teaching Arts Education to elementary students.

I created these teaching songs for a course on Elementary Physical Education. The songs are a fun and musical way to help your students remember the types of, and certain steps to, the Fundamental Movement Skills.

Unit Plan Grade 2 ELA Kara

This is a Grade 2 English Language Arts unit I created that infuses Environmental Education, which I created for ESCI 302. It focuses on the development of environment appreciation and awareness while building the basic ELA skills of reading, writing, spelling, listening, speaking, and comprehension. It satisfies the Compose and Create #2 outcome from the Saskatchewan curriculum and, therefore, focuses on students expressing their learning through a vast range of mediums.

White Supremacy through the “Sassy Squaw” costume

This prezi, created for ECS 110, showcases how an inappropriate children’s costume demonstrates white supremacy.

Four of my peers and I made a wiki that delves into gender equity. It includes books that promote gender equity, lesson plans that integrate this learning into various different subjects areas and grade levels, additional online resources for introducing this topic to your class, and much more.

This is an Explorations through Music unit that is geared towards an Early Childhood classroom.
