This is very resourceful. I find the font for the stories to still be a bit small (or maybe it's just the style of font) however, I have never taught this topic in 3rd grade yet so this is great way to start it off. I'd love to see a list of books that were used as read alouds. Thanks!

Product Questions & Answers

On  September 9, 2013,  Lindsay M. asked:
Hi there,

I bought the Fables unit from you and left feedback yesterday. I appreciated the reply--I understand now why you made the text so small and I will ask next time if something is possible before leaving feedback. I can't see any way to undo the feedback if you are willing to change the font size. Some sellers I have dealt with in the past haven't been as friendly and were not willing to change errors/mistakes/Etc. Thanks again for considering the changes to the font size.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 9, 2013Brenda Martin answered:
The only way to undo the feedback is to put in a ticket with the support team under the contact us button. I would never ask a buyer to that...it's completely up to your discretion. I will try to get the unit revised this weekend (as a full time teacher and mom there's no way I can get to it before then). As always, I value feedback and am constantly trying to improve! Look at your purchases on Sunday evening for a newly revised version.

I am just beginning student teaching and my cooperating teacher has already begun a myths, fables, and folk tales unit. She is wanting me to wrap up the lesson with an activity. So before I purchase this unit I want to know if I'd even be able to use the end of the unit activities without completing the other mini lessons provided?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 19, 2013Brenda Martin answered:
I would be happy to just send it to you. I know how tight money is when you're student teaching. Please leave your email and I will send it to you this weekend. I hope you like it!

On  April 7, 2013,  Kelley D. asked:
In Day one of folktales, you mention introducing the vocabulary poster. Is this included somewhere, or do you mean simply coming up with vocabulary that students may see as they begin understanding folktales? Thanks!

(I did purchase this unit and am planning now.)
