We love fairy tales! Over the years, we have learned that our kids often do not know the traditional fairy tales. We hope you and your students will enjoy learning all about fairy tales. We are concentrating on traditional fairy tales. Sometimes, we will throw in a popular remake or fractured fairy tale ideas. However, our focus is on teaching traditional fairy tale versions and adaptations.
We have created a unit about the Strega Nona story written by Tomie dePaola.
We hope you enjoy these Strega Nona story activities.
PLEASE NOTE: The majority of this packet has COLOR ONLY clip art. We have printed in color and grayscale. We are happy with the results in both versions. We just wanted you to be aware of this before purchasing.
