Cinderella is always fun to teach in second grade. My boys even enjoy the story. This past year I used several Common Core standards as I taught Cinderella. I brought in the story Yeh-Shen to compare and contrast stories from diverse cultures. I created this unit to create more of a cohesive lesson and to create a product at the end. Included is a paper bag project that can be modified to what you are teaching.
Here is a listing of what is include…
• Posters explaining standards and how to search the text.
• Double Bubble maps for all Cinderellas describing character traits.
• Venn Diagrams comparing Cinderella’s from other parts of the world and Cinderella.
• Two types of flap books describing the point of view and voice.
• A four square graphic organizer for each Cinderella and flap books describing story structure.
• A flap book describing the character response to events in the story.
• Paper bag book instructions and activities. There are several ways you can organize the bag book. It depends on your unit. You can compare and contrast each Cinderella. You could also compare and contrast two Cinderellas, then include the book Seriously, Cinderella is so Annoying. This will allow you to teach point of view.
