Grade 3 Month 1 The Wonder of Beginnings
As students begin to feel the dreamy aspects of childhood passing away it is a great time to use Creation Stories to guide them to reconnect with the people and world around them. They will hear stories from their local Indigenous culture as well as other global cultural/religious stories. These stories tell of a beginning, a loss, and a search for connection and mimic the emotional state of the 8 and 9-year-old. Such stories will form the basis of the third-grade year.
