Product Description
Use these fun folktale character hats for a variety of literature activities. Activities include:

Retelling: Have small groups or partners retell a folktale by acting out the role of a character. Assign characters with hats. Students can find their group/partner by looking for other characters in their folktale. This is a great way for students to practice voice, too – i.e. Does the character speak slowly or quickly?; What words would the character use?; Does the character have an accent or speak in a high or low pitch?

Who am I?: After reading or listening to a variety of folktales have students provide character descriptions and recall details with this game. Students must place hats on their heads without looking at who they have. Once everyone is ready, students walk around to classmates and ask questions that can be answered with a “yes” or “no” to try and solve which character they have on their head. For example, a student might ask, “Am I an animal?” or “Am I from a fairy tale?”. Students can sit down at their desk when they solve who they are and continue to answer questions for their classmates.

Twisted Tales: Have small groups or partners tell/act out a new folktale with characters from familiar ones. For example, what would happen if Goldilocks was in a folktale with the Three Little Pigs? Or if Johnny Appleseed was in a folktale with the Big Bad Wolf?

Reading Groups: Have small groups read a folktale together by reading for their character. Narrator hat is included for this activity. The fairytale hats are royal positions instead of names so that the hats can be used for a wide variety of tales. For example, if you are reading for Snow White wear the princess hat.
