What is in an AIM Teaching Kit?
Always begin with a Step 1 kit and build knowledge through each step sequentially. AIM is designed to scaffold the development of proficiency in a systematic manner that really works!
Each kit contains 50 hours of instructional material, including:
Whole-Class Activities Book
This is the teacher’s guide, which includes whole-class activities in 10-minute segments, classroom systems, a master calendar, evaluation blackline masters, vocabulary lists and game cards.
Partner and Group Activities Book
These blackline masters include the play, vocabulary list, language-manipulation activities, simple and more complex questions based on the story, creative writing activities and words to the accompanying songs.
These materials include the play with colour images in a large print Big Book, backdrop scenery for the play, anglais/français cards for entry routines, vocabulary and lyrics posters, and image cards. A CD-ROM with PowerPoint™ presentations and pdfs is also included.
Video and Audio Resources
Each kit comes with a DVD containing the play, gestures, dances and music videos, as well as an Audio CD with songs and raps.
AIM Portal (at an additional cost)
Though the online AIM portal is not included with the kits, it is a recommended home support resource. The portal gives students a access to the digital teaching kits on a dynamic and safe firewall-protected learning site.
