Communication

The communication competency encompasses the set of abilities that students use to impart and exchange information, experiences and ideas, to explore the world around them, and to understand and effectively engage in the use of digital media.

The intention of the titles chosen, except for Hideaway Cove, is to explore an individual, family or communities cultural activities and to provide a platform to think, then communicate from. The student would then retell/explain what the activity is that they participate in.

The last page of Hideaway Cove is a call to action when visiting west coast beaches. It is an exemplar of how a chart/poster could be made by students that is inclusive for any activity, be it the skate park, shopping mall, or hiking trail etc.


Thirteen Moons On Turtle's Back: A Native American Year Of Moons
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous American; Native American;
Grade Levels: Preschool; Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3; 4;

To many Native Americans, the 13 cycles of the moon represent the changing seasons and the passage of time. Each moon has its own special name that, while varying among the tribal nations, is consistent with the legend that the 13 scales on Old Turtle's back hold the key to these moons. The authors present 13 poems that take readers through the year, from the "Moon of Popping Trees"--when the "cottonwoods crack with frost"--to the "Big Moon" of the Abenakis. The book's effective design consists of verses in vertical columns at the left of each spread, with the remainder occupied by Locker's ( Family Farm ; Catskill Eagle ) typically lush artwork. His oil paintings are eye-catching in their depth of color reflecting dramatic seasonal changes. Trees, skies and woodland creatures are rendered in vivid hues that combine to produce an enthralling vision. This unusual and intelligent book is an exemplary introduction to Native American culture with its emphasis on the importance of nature.

All ages.
