Use these headings to create a folktale anchor chart. Perfect for introducing folktales or closing a unit up. Folktale goes in the middle and CAN BE, IS, IS NOT goes around. Students can brainstorm on post-it notes or as a class for each catergory.
"A Folktale CAN BE....." funny, silly, short, found in the traditional literature section of the library
"A Folktale IS....a short story, a story that teaches a lesson, something you can learn from, traditional literature, a story with lots of personification...etc."
"A Folktale IS NOT- "Long, a song, a story that you can't learn from, a biography..etc"
