* New Look, Same Product * If you need a fun way to teach the Common Core Standards for English-Language Arts, this unit is the one for you! This fairy tale unit includes tales for both boys and girls. Through reading, writing, and higher order thinking, you and your students will work your way through ten Common Core Standards using 25 different activities! The students will write newspaper articles, create posters, publish invitations, write police reports, and more!
While aligned to the Common Core for 2nd Grade, this unit can be used in Grades 1-4 with little to no modifications.
The following literature will need to be purchased or found at your local library to be used in this unit:
The Rough-Face Girl by Rafe Martin
The Three Pigs
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by A. Wolf by Jon Scieszka
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
Somebody and the Three Blairs by Marilyn Tolhurst
Little Red Riding Hood
Little Red Riding Hood: A Newfangled Prarie Tale by Lisa Campbell Ernst
After reading the fairy tales and fractured fairy tales, students will create their own fractured fairy tales using graphic organizers and writing papers to publish their work!
I know your students will LOVE the higher order thinking included in this unit and the humor involved in each of the fairy tales!
