We started by checking out the characteristics of fairy tales with our Fairy Tale Anchor Book and talking about the examples of these that we could remember from familiar stories.
Next, during read-aloud the students have been hunting for examples of the characteristics and recording their findings on stickies. Anyone who has ever put stickies in the hands of a child know they're a hit every time.
We read The Three Billy Goats Gruff, which the kids thought was hilarious, and they posted their stickies on our Fairy Tales chart.
