The "Fairy Tale Children's Book" not only enables your upper elementary to middle school students to transform themselves from readers to writers, but it also creates an opportunity for them to share their novels with lower elementary children.
Students will reflect upon an enjoyable reading experience by converting a book they read into a fun, exciting, and interesting “Fairy Tale Children’s Book” while utilizing the following literary terms: setting, conflict, and resolution.
Student writers will publish their kid-friendly fairy tales by creating an attention-grabbing title, colorful drawings, big fonts, an "About the Author" page, and a back cover blurb with reviews.
Your students will turn formerly standard book reports into amazing book projects from the moment they write "Once upon a time..." until they finish "happily ever after."
Your class will have step-by-step directions on how to successfully accomplish the project. In addition, a real-life student model of the "Fairy Tale Children's Book" accompanies the download. This will reduce the number of student "how to" questions. Instead, it will give them a jump start on the project and help to focus their efforts on being creative storytellers and illustrators.
