This calendar is a celebration of Cultural Curriculum ideas from BC’s 12 urban AHS programs. The 20.5 x 14.5 inch laminated perpetual calendar shares language and cultural activities from programs around the province and allows space for adding your own ideas. It can be written on with washable markers and erased, making it easy to use over and over.
This book provides staff and communities with ideas and suggestions on recruiting Elders, orienting them to the classroom setting, and involving them in Early Childhood Programs. With photos and examples of Elders who are active in AHS sites across BC, it acknowledges their contributions and important role in teaching our children. Tools for cultural protocols and preschool licensing requirements are also included.
