I have been teaching Mi'gmaq immersion at Alaqsite'w Gitpu School for over 20 years. I have developed programs for Kindergarten and Grade 1 immersion (4-6 year old) and four years ago I incorporated an outdoors nature-based component, called Nipugtugewei Kindergarten. In this model, mornings are spent in the classrooms and afternoons are spent on the land. Both the in-class and outdoors components address provincial curriculum concepts in science, social studies, math, and language arts, as well as physical education. In the immersion program, all these subject areas include language-related and cultural learning outcomes.
No groups to show.
