Culture - Week 3 of Home Learning

Culture Challenge:

*Have someone at home take a picture or video of you researching, practicing, and partaking in the Culture Challenge each week and send it to Ms. Mountain via email, text, or messenger to be featured on her teacher page! Congrats to Mya Augustine who was the first (and only) student to send her picture in last week :) 

Visit the weblink to the Mi'gmaq Mi'kmaq Micmac Online Talking Dictionary and explore what the following words in English sound like in Mi'kmaq. Type the word in the top corner in English and it will re-direct you to another page. Click the word after being re-directed and it will show you: the pronunciation guide with recordings to listen to and hear what the word sounds like in Mi'kmaq, along with; the part of speech, translation, meanings, example of the word in a sentence, and a cross-reference to another language. 

Words to explore:

  • thank you (can you remember? check to see if you are right!)
  • welcome
  • smudging
  • feast
  • family

Here is an easy craft with numbers 0 to 5. Students can use bingo dabbers, glue macoroni or cheerios or other small food items, or simlply color each number. These are also good for finger tracing if there are younger children at home.

Challenge yourself this week & share it with Ms. Mountain via email, text, or messenger. I look forward to recieving more pictures of you all!

Watch the video recording of: 'Grandmother, tell us about the feast.', read by Ms. Mountain. 

After listening to the story, you can share answers to the questions below with someone in your family:

  • Did you have a feast during this past Easter weekend?
  • What are some of your favourite traditional foods to eat at Easter?
  • What other traditions do you and your family do at Easter? 


For students in Grades 3-6, research the topic: "smudging". 

If you choose to take part in the weekly Culture challenges, please have someone at home take a picture of you researching and send it off to Ms. Mountain via text, email, or messenger. Share your research with this person also. 

I hope everyone had a safe & enjoyable Easter weekend with their families!
