You can watch and listen to Agindaasowinan read by Cindy Ottertail. Follow along, repeat after Cindy, and enjoy listening to the story.
Use the flashcards during circle time with prompts and translations on the back of each card, or hang up in your learning environment. Each card also has a QR code to scan and hear the word said by a fluent speaker.
Print, laminate, and cut to create a reusable resource. Or cut and paste to create an ice cream picture. Only use numbers 1-5 puzzles for younger learners. Celebrate with an ice cream party and asking how many scoops they want!
Print, cut, and laminate the coloured images to create a matching and cutting activity. Match the cut images to the black and white pages using the language prompts on each page.
Laminate and use with Goldfish crackers or playdough to count in each fish bowl. You can bring these outside and use items you find outdoors to count with too. Remember to change the page size to legal when printing!
Print and cut before inserting into photo pocket dice. Roll, practice saying the word, and handing it to a friend “giinitam”. You can also laminate and use as small flashcards, or to create a memory game.
Print and allow learners to use their fine motor skills to colour and trace. Use the language prompts on each page to discuss the image and scan the QR code to hear the number word!
Cut and laminate to use for number recognition and counting practice. Use paper clip or clothespin to guess how many ladybugs are on the leaf. You can also use this activity on a Smart Board and have learners circle the answer.
Print and use for an individual activity on number recognition, counting practice, and graphing skills. You can also use this activity on a Smart Board and have learners chart the numbers themselves.
