This is a power point that correlates with the McGraw Hill Wonders Reading Series. This power point teaches the elements of the genre of fairytales. This power point goes along with the Unit 2, Week 2 story "Where the Mountain Meets the Moon".
This power point includes a web for students to brainstorm things they are familiar with about the genre, colorful slides which include animation, and an independent activity with a web that instruct students to apply the skills they've learned in the power point to the short fairytale found in the reader's/writer's workshop book "The Modern Cinderella". Students can read the passage independently and jot down elements they find in the text that identify it as a fairy tale, then they can come back as a class and share their discoveries. This is a great way to help struggling readers in a safe environment where they should not feel uncomfortable sharing out.
