Fairytale unit for the upper grades. This multi-story unit includes comprehension pages, graphic organizers, writing activities, and the text of the stories for multiple fairy tales. Stories are written at 5th to 6th grade reading level. Text is included for the following stories - The Frog Prince, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, The Chinese Cinderella (Yeh-Shen), and The Native American Cinderella (The Rough Faced Girl). Links are included for YouTube readings of Lon Po Po, Yeh-Shen, and The Rough Faced Girl.
There are also foldables and graphic organizers included for use in interactive reading notebooks.
The unit test at the end of the unit has the text for the story The Elves and the Shoemaker for application of skills learned in the story.
Skills covered: identifying elements of a fairy tale; parts of a story; character traits; compare and contrast similar stories & characters within different stories; context clues; and writing narratives.
This unit took my class about 3 weeks to complete, doing 30 minutes a day.
