The story Interrupting Chicken would make a great intro to a folktale unit even for the upper elementary grades! Use this bundle to boost your lessons either whole group or a small group setting.
Vocabulary Flash Cards – I have selected six words to boost student’s background knowledge for this fun book. Cut out the cards and review in small group or post for your whole group. I also included a mini quiz sheet if you would like to check students’ vocabulary accuracy.
Before You Read Worksheet – I use this as my morning work for the day that I read this to my students. The questions were designed to jumpstart my students to begin thinking about the topics that might be discussed later during the read aloud.
Comprehension Place Mat – Review sequencing by drawing, Cause and Effect Graphic Organizer, Character wants, and Author’s Craft. Short and Sweet Recall worksheet perfect for small group!
Folktale Half Sheet Posters – Perfect to build the background to the stories mentioned in the story. I also wanted to emphasize that folktales come from different cultures, so each folktale lets students know where the stories originated. Students will also learn that a lot of the folktales were recorded and retold by Brothers Grimm.
