Kits

We believe parents are a child’s first and best teacher. Our kits are filled with books, activities, and games for children and information for adults.

Early Literacy Kits (for ages birth through 5) help parents understand and use the five practices that help prepare children for literacy: Talking, Singing, Playing, Reading, and Writing. There are also two narrative storytelling kits that will develop early literacy skills through storytelling.

Preschool Theme Kits (for ages 3-5) let young children explore the world, and get ready for school. With themes like AnimalsWeather, and Colors, each kit includes books, toys or games, teaching resources, activities, songs and fingerplays, as well as a DVD or CD.

Since Time Immemorial Kits (for ages 2-8) were created specifically for residents of Whatcom County to improve knowledge and understanding of the local tribal nations.

The kit themes are modeled around and expand upon the early learning section of the “Since Time Immemorial” (STI) Tribal Sovereignty in Washington State curriculum developed through the Office of Native Education/Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).  They include many books to read aloud as well as teaching resources, videos, cds, puppets and locally produced stories and photos.
