Fairy Tale Fun

We are exploring the characteristics of fairy tales right now during our literacy block and having so much fun with the stories! I've actually been surprised with how many of my students don't know some of the traditional stories, but they enjoy them as much as the modern "fractured fairy tales"!

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.
They LOVE their little Mini Books!

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.
LOVE this adorable clip art by Kari Bolt!!
Tomorrow, we're going to tackle the Fairy Tales Activity Mini Book, which is more detailed. These are part of my "Good Readers" Mini Books series and you can grab a FREE sample of this Genre package here:
 So...What story do you recommend for tomorrow's lesson??

  1. I'm always amazed at the fairy tales and nursery rhymes so many of my class don't know - I find it so sad they they don't have them read to them at home. Jack and the Beanstalk is always a favourite in my class!

    1. It sure is sad, Pixie! Some of my best childhood memories involve books. I don't imagine that an iPod or a Nintendo DS will hold that same magic...

      Thanks for stopping by!
