Folktales: Fables, Myths, and Legends Lesson Theme and Genre Lesson for 3rd Grade
You can choose to make a poster, a flip book, or any other creative project you can think of to make this assignment fun! The pages 3-4 are for the poster pictured above, and page 5 if the front of a flip book I made that will be easier to do if you are pressed for time! I also left the same information in an easy to copy/paste format just in case you would like to change this project to fit your needs.
Use any stories you like. However I do have some suggestions.
This Folktale Lesson offers 2 simple and effective lessons that address the following TEKS:
English Language Arts and Reading Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS ) 3.5A Reading/Comprehension of Literary Text/Theme and Genre: paraphrase the themes and supporting details of fables, legends, myths, or stories.
You can differentiate these two assignments by filling in more information for students that require more supports to be successful and highlighting the words that create imagery. These lessons are perfect for small group instruction, literacy centers, reteaching skills, extending the lesson, and state assessment preparation. GT, ELL, ESL, bilingual, special education, general education, and struggling students will happily participate with these lessons! You may change these forms to fit your individual classroom needs; however, please do not copyright the new creation or sell it. I reserve the right to sell this product. Good luck and I hope you have fun teaching this lesson!
