❤️ Fairytales are fun to read and write. This set will help your students get excited about writing narratives.

This ready-to-print set includes narrative writing/creative writing, describing characters/character traits, and more! Second and third graders can have fun retelling or creating their own fairytales with this packet.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a zip file. It includes a pdf file and a set of 5 editable pages so that your students can type in their stories!

⭐️Fairytale writing is the perfect way to incorporate Common Core narrative writing skills. This pack contains fairy tale story starters, graphic organizers, writing frames, WANTED posters for the big bad wolf, and any villain, an oral storytelling game, and more--including a rubric for meeting the Common Core State Standards for narrative writing with hyperlinks.

⭐️After reading your own collection of fairy tales, your kids will be ready to write. Included are all kinds of templates, and pages for students who need scaffolding, and pages that are slightly more advanced. Choose the activities that suit your children's individual skills.

⭐️This resource refers to 3 old fairytales that kids can use as starting points. The templates help them retell favorites, and write new fairy tales from old ones—these twists are referred to as “fractured fairy tales”. These fairytale frames / templates will help even the most hesitant writer.

⭐️Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Little Red Riding Hood are THE three fairy tales you'll want to use as the basis for writing their own stories in this large packet. But you can use any others as well! You will want to provide the books first, if they have not read the stories. Retelling and rewriting new fairytales, or creating fractured fairytales are all options for your writers. They will have many choices for planning and writing a fairy tale.

⭐️In addition to a variety of templates and frames, a "Fairytale Grab Bag" storytelling activity is included in this resource.

⭐️It should supplement your fairy tale unit as there are lots of writing frames and templates to choose from. You will need to provide the books to be sure they have read the traditional fairy tales. Doing this first should help your students go through the writing process.

You can decide whether you want your students to bind several of the pages together to make a fairy tale book...A collection of their writings bound together would serve as a narrative writing portfolio, documenting their work.

The activities in this resource are aligned with the Common Core State Standards for grades 2 and 3. But you will be able to align to either grade 1 or grade 4 as well.

This is my best seller!

I hope you will check out the preview...to be sure this is appropriate for your class and aligns with your curriculum and lesson plans.
