The Elves and the Shoemaker is a favorite fairy tale for kindergarten and first graders. Build comprehension and sequencing skills as your students create a retelling mat, write a retell or summary, complete basic character analysis, respond to the lesson or theme and more! We like to read this in December during holiday or Christmas time during reading and writing, but this story can be used all year long!

It includes:

*Character/setting pieces for oral retell

*Summary Pages

*Theme response

*Character web, writing page, and venn to compare

*Opinion writing prompt

*List Writing extension

*Connection extension writing
