Fairy Tales are enjoyed by all readers. I’ve taught Fairy Tales with my third graders for many years, and it has become one of my favorite genres. I’m thrilled to offer my resources in a new lap book format.
Keep in mind, these resources work well in an interactive notebook too. I chose to have a few of my resources focus on 8 different fairy tales, but these activities are certainly open and ready to be used with ANY fairy tale.
Here’s a brief overview:
Please read page 4 for directions on how to assemble a lap book. I tried to be very clear!
Use the “What Are Fairy Tales” and “Who Were The Brothers Grimm” mini-posters for building background.
I chose to focus this unit on the following skills: story elements and vocabulary of the fairy tale genre, the lesson of a fairy tale, analyzing characters and their unique traits, personification, point of view, problem/solution and creative writing.
The CCSS for grades 2-4 are at the bottom of this page for lesson planning purposes.
I’ve included some of my favorite graphic organizers to use for the different skills in this unit, and a fun story cube to practice recalling story events.
The materials you’ll need to have your students write their own fairy tale are included, however I did not add a writing rubric. I realize schools adopt a specific rubric to use, therefore I do not wish to impose my personal grading tools on your class.
You may wish to use the lap book as an ongoing unit organizer or as a culminating project. There are many creative possibilities!
The blank Fairy Tale Story Elements Acrostic flap book works well with helping students solidify their thinking about the genre. Have them write one thing they learned about fairy tales for each letter in the words fairy tale.
Please be sure to provide proper background on what fairy tales are and why they were written. See pgs. 5-6 for assistance.
