Daily Routine

Uqautchim Uglua’s ‘Daily Routine’ is the primary classroom tool we use to impart core Iñupiaq knowledge and learning concepts, including the atchagat (orthography), kisitchisit (numerals) and qaunġich (colors) to our ECE immersion learners. It consists of an alternating set of interactive songs and activities which help to promote a truly Iñupiaq learning environment through use of supporting strategies such as Iñupiaq drumming and singing. The Daily Routine has proven very effective in helping our learners to acquire and retain knowledge and skills.
