We've launched the most ADORABLE
Balanced-Literacy Fairy Tale Unit!
I couldn't help myself...I had to post some photos from the first few days of our unit.
I am splitting fairy tales up into two weeks (which will make for one LARGE unit)
1. Princesses/Royalty (Cinderella, Rupunzel, etc...)
2. Folk Stories (3 Little Pigs, Goldilocks, Etc..)
Here are some PRINCESS/ROYALTY Sneak Peaks!
Here is how we are keeping track of our fairy tale features. Each time we read a story we check it off here and in our fairy tale folders.
A follow up for shared writing:
Writing Invitations for the Royal Ball
Look at bottom left: She included a menu. LOL
After reading Cinderella and Sidney Rella, we made glass slippers and sneakers. Then, we decided that we needed to have a "chat" with Ms. Cinderella. =)
Shared Writing: We practiced writing summaries and identifying the most important parts. We negotiated these parts together and I was the scribe.
Mapping the Royal Kingdom!
Point of View: We ALWAYS think about the main characters...lets take some time to think about the other characters' points of view!
The Cinder-Stories we'll study.
Rumpelstiltskin Math Activity!
We graphed our names and compared them to the length of Rumpelstiltskin!
I have had SO much fun creating these so far, and I'm only three days in! The unit will have much more balanced literacy packed in.
