This was one of my favorite folktale when I was younger, and that is why I wanted to create a fun, bold handout to go along with my lesson on folktales.
How I used handout 1: "Elements of a Folktale"
The teacher should model how to use the graphic organizer. The students will complete a graphic organizer on the story. I used this in a second grade setting, so I MODELED MODELED MODELED.
Make sure to discuss with your class the moral of this folktale.
How I used handout 2: "Illustrating the Main Event"
This is a simple handout to assess your students on moral and important story events within in the folktale. The handout instructs the students to illustrate the most Important event that happened in the story and to write down the story's moral. I LOVE to see what event my students thought was the most important and how they illustrate the story.
