Written by Wendy Maxwell, with songs and raps co-written by Matt Maxwell, this story and associated activities found in the kit will engage and entertain younger students. The main character, Marie, meets with many familiar people in her community throughout her search for Minuit, her black dog. In the end, she has a wonderful surprise that will delight the students! In this kit, students will enter the story, become the characters, talk, laugh and sing about them within a familiar context that will support students of all learning styles.

      Through our multi-modal approach, focus on literacy, use of gestures to provide visual and kinaesthetic support while maximizing student production, you will see student engagement and proficiency levels improve rapidly!
