PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“Perfect organizers to help my students keep track of the different types of folktales.”

In order to analyze plot, understand characters, appreciate illustrations, and uncover the moral or message of folktales, students must first have a good understanding of the characteristics of all folktales and the subtle characteristics of the five types of folktales: legends, myths, tall tales, fables, and fairy tales.

This "Ready To Print" curriculum guide meets THREE of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts (ELA) for Grade 3 Reading Literature.

Use these forms to help your students recognize the similarities between all folktales and the small differences that distinguish each of the five types of folktales. This helps to build a strand of consistency that unites a Folktale Unit involving several texts while encouraging the close reading necessary to meet additional Common Core State Standards.

Thank your for your interest and I hope you enjoy this product from Project Hallway!
