This fairy tale fact and opinion resource is perfect for 1st - 3rd graders and can be used for small group instruction and for center activities. It also covers many Common Core objectives!
First through third graders need practice understanding the difference between fact and opinions
, as this is an important skill needed for reading and writing. This resource allows students to practice independently and then self-check to monitor their own learning.
Each fairy tale contains:
An easy to read one page story
Six cards with fact statements from the story
Six cards with opinion statements
Sorting mat with answer key
The following fairy tales are included:
Little Red Riding Hood
The Three Pigs
Jack and the Beanstalk
The Princess and the Pea
The Three Billy Goats Gruff
The Three Bears
Simply print, laminate the cards for durability, cut out and place in a center or use for small group instruction. Each fairy tale is color coordinated for easy identification.
Personally, I place each different fairy tale cards in a baggie with the sorting page and answer key (also color coordinated) so that students can easily sort the cards if they get mixed up.
