Do you read the fairy tale genre to your children?

It’s one of my students’ favorite themes. Among their favorites is Jack and the Beanstalk.

To help them sequence & retell the story, I designed this super-fun beanstalk craft.

So that you can quickly & easily make an example to share, I’ve included full-color patterns, as well as the black & white ones for students.

Children color & cut out the castle & title cloud, then glue them together.

An 8-link paper chain is suspended from the base.

Three leaves with story element captions (Setting, Characters & Events) add to the beanstalk’s appearance.

Since there are a variety of versions for Jack & the Beanstalk, I’ve included a number of “picture tile” options.

Students choose the ones that were in the story they read, then color & cut out the mini pages. sequencing them in the order that they appeared in the fairy tale.

These “itty bitty” storytelling booklets, are then glued to the appropriate leaf.

See the PREVIEW for lots of samples.

Completed projects look terrific suspended from the ceiling as a border along a hallway wall.

Before displaying, have students partner up, taking turns explaining what the setting is and who the characters are, then retelling the tale using the picture prompts.

For writing practice, and to further check comprehension, I’ve also included a “Here’s What Happened…” worksheet, which can be done as a whole group with little ones.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you lots of “happily-ever-after” moments.
