This writing project requires students to use traditional fairy tales as a guide to write a new version of that fairy tale. To do this they will write from the perspective of a character who is different than narrator of the original version. Once all of the stories have been written, there are materials included for students to turn their story into a book or for a class book to be made. It's very comprehensive with several teacher and student tools- organizers, rubric, writing paper, and more.
Other than the elements of writing, this is also a great lesson on teaching character perspectives, character traits, and the elements of a fairy tale.
- Students show they understand the elements of a fairy tale
- Students learn about different perspectives
- Students write a traditional story with a twist by writing from a different perspective
- Students use appropriate conventions while writing
- Students analyze character traits to develop their writing
- Students use appropriate paragraphing with details
