Literacy Seed Kit

A collaborative partnership between Northlands School Division, Edmonton Public School Division and Alberta Education developed the Literacy Seed Kit. The 76 book collection was created as a traveling classroom library to support the need for culturally relevant resources. The collection contains fiction and non-fiction books in a wide range of genres. Teacher guides with curricular links, projects, ideas, and activities are included with each book. This resource supports a student/classroom connection and an Alberta Education program or initiative.
