Language Kit

Circle Time Kit

The Waakaabidaa Kit has been created to help language learners master phrases in Anishinaabemowin that cover calendars, moon phases, seasons, temperatures and getting ready for the weather. Below you can download our resource guide with ideas for using the available materials. Many of these activities are aimed at improving fine motor skills while using language. We always encourage you to seek out a speaker in your community to check on how words are said in your community. There is a lot of variation for the names of months/moons in different areas – ours is just one way!

If you would like to edit the month titles for the calendars or the traceable activities, you can find the links to download and install them so in our Resource Guide.

We are always adding new resources and ideas, so be sure to check back regularly for new materials!
