Product Description

Since my storytelling wheels have been so popular, I decided to make “”Fairy Tale” story wheels, to help practice the “retelling & sequencing” a story standards, using favorite fairy tales.

This is the first in a series, so if you have a favorite fairy tale that you’d like me to design a story wheel for, simply leave a note in the “Question” section, or e-mail me at: dianetpt@gmail.com

There are full color patterns to use for an independent center, as well as a sample to share, plus a black and white pattern, so students can make their own.

When everyone is done, practice telling “The 3 Little Pigs” using the manipulative. Everyone starts by turning their wheel so that the little pig who built his house of straw, appears in the “pie-slice window”, then call on a child to tell what happened.

Continue to turn the wheel, calling on different students to tell you that portion of the story.

When you get to the sixth-pie slice, where the wolf blows the stick house down, have children unfasten the brass brad and flip their wheel over, to reveal the last half of the story.

I’ve also included a “backside” pattern, where students simply flip their pig wheel up & over to reveal “The End!” and the pig’s, pipe cleaner tail in the middle instead of at the top.

Children can then finish retelling the story, without having to take their wheel out. You decide which option is easiest for you & your students.

Afterwards, have students pick a partner and take turns sharing their wheels with each other. Sometimes we do this with our older, reading buddies.

This is a quick, easy & fun way to check comprehension too.

For writing practice, have students complete the “Here’s What Happened” writing prompt worksheet, then color it.

There’s a full color template so you can quickly & easily make an example to share, or do as a whole group activity with little ones.

To check comprehension, and reinforce the “sequencing a story” standard, I’ve also included a “color, cut & glue” sequencing worksheet.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you and your students enjoy “turning & learning”.
