Reader’s Workshop Unit 9-A Fairy Tale EndingMichele and I had so much fun planning this unit. This unit of study focuses on the fairy tale genre while reviewing characters, settings, retelling, beginning, middle, end, problem and solution and introducing the element of magic. This unit is structured so that students are learning about a particular element of fairy tales and then using that element to retell fairy tale stories. Because retelling is such a difficult skill for our youngest readers, it will be beneficial for the students to have multiple opportunities to practice retelling.
We broke the unit down into four weeks:
*Week one- Introducing fairy tales and their elements/ retelling
*Week two- Fairy tale elements & retelling
*Week three- Fairy tale elements & retelling
*Week four- Fairy tales and folktales/end of unit celebration (Reader’s theater)
What a fun way to finish up the unit with a reader's theater for Jack and the Beanstalk.
These lessons will have your little fairies magically ending up a wonderful year!
Here are some slides from the pack….
There is also a fun craftivity where the kids make this castle. Then, on the inside, they sort characters-good characters and evil characters.
Now back to some more snuggle time…..
