This is a journal which students can use while learning about the elements of fairy tales. It includes a page for characters (good or evil), magical words/phrases, happy endings, numbers (3's and 7's), and a page for students to write about their favorite fairy tale. My students complete this activity during a 2 week investigation of fairy tales. After reading and discussing many fairy tales, we create an anchor chart with the elements. As we create the chart, the students also reflect independently in their own fairy tale journal.
