PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Letter writing, point of view, asking and answering questions, addressing envelopes!

The product is one of my favorites! It can be used with any grade that studies fairy tales! This is a twist on Allen & Janet Ahlberg’s book, .The Jolly Postman You can create a bulletin board entitled “Special Delivery” (sign included) and hang the over-sized envelopes on the board. Super cute! Envelopes are addressed to the following characters:
Cinderella
Prince Charming
Giant
Jack
Fairy Godmother
Hansel
Gretel
Wolf (from Red Riding Hood)
Wolf (from 3 pigs)
Three Bears
Three Pigs
Goldilocks
Red Riding Hood
Witch (from Hansel and Gretel)

After reading the following tales: Cinderella, Hansel & Gretel, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks & the Three Bears, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood the kids get to choose which character they would like to ask questions to about their story. This is where you can teach parts of a letter and this product includes stationary that is differentiated with different lines and with some scaffolds to accommodate all learners. All you need to do is supply legal size envelopes. You can also teach how to address the envelopes. Next, the envelopes are “mailed”. Students then randomly choose a letter to answer as that character. This is your point of view and the kids love it!! They can be as creative as they want in answering the letters. Some of their answers can be found in the character’s story but other times the writer can be creative with their answers.
From there I take all the letters to and from the characters and I create a book. Included in this product is an editable cover that you can add your class name and year. Also is a cover letter to the reader of your Fairy Tale Mail that you can also edit and add your class name. I organize the book so the letter written to the character is on the left side of the book and the response is on the right. I type up all the letters and have the kids illustrate them. I bind it together and everyone gets a copy. It is a hit with parents and kids and so many skills are utilized. It is a great culminating activity!
Here’s what you get:
-15 over-sized envelopes (measuring almost 8.5 x 11-landscape)
-sign for the bulletin board
-6 different forms of stationary
-Editable book cover
-Editable cover letter to the reader
All you need is to supply the envelopes! Such fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
