Princess Pen Pals is a fairy tale companion for 6 popular stories: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty and Aladdin.
I have included:
a) Story Sequencing - students write friendly letters from the perspective of each princess. 6 retell letters following the sequence of each story are included with 6 story words on each letter. 1 blank letter is also included. Pages are colour coded for each story.
b) Story Vocabulary - students highlight and sort vocabulary by noun or verb, number of syllables and short vowel or long vowel sound. 18 word cards (nouns and verbs) for each story. More activities include: ABC order, making words and choosing the best adjective (comparative and superlative).
I built this fairy tale companion to address the modified curriculum for one of my students. I was inspired by the picture book: Dear Cinderella by Marian Moore and Mary Jane Kensington. I highly recommend it! Story vocabulary is from the Disney versions of these princess stories.
