Wooden Syllabics for the Classroom

Diane Ellis is a developer of educational materials with many years’ experience working with Oji-Cree communities in Northern Ontario, who is now working with Inuktitut. She recently sent me a sample set of her wooden syllabic cut-outs to see if they would work for Cree as well. They’ve got all the right characters – and if you ask her, she can probably customize a set for teachers from any community.

To learn more about these wooden syllabic cut-outs and other classroom items, and to contact Diane directly, check her website: https://whitefoxlearning.com/

I’ve just recently seen some plastic characters that some communities are making for themselves with 3d printers (here’s a link: I’m sorry I don’t know more!) but these wooden ones are generous in size, and nice to touch: for some users they might be just perfect!
