Fairy Tale Unit Part ONE

I was going to wait until I'd created the whole unit, but I have gotten tons of emails asking for it {thank you!} and so I will break it up into two parts: royal and folk.


Here are some other snap shots from the royal week!
Point of View: We read Cinderella's Rat and I used this worksheet a few times this week to help my students think about the feelings of other characters!

They are so FUNNY!!!


Most of the week was spent on Cinderella but I did throw in some Rupunzel and Rumpelstiltskin!

We made a list of thing we'd do if we were locked in a tower like Rupunzel!


So, here is the first part of my fairytale unit! Enjoy!

(revised thanks to some great blog friends!!!)

If you download, all I ask is that you:
1. Please FOLLOW if you don't already! =)
2. Leave a comment with any constructive criticism so that I can continue to get better.
3. Share, share, share! I love networking with you all and appreciate when you pass my blog along!

* It may have a few typos, my friend Cindy has been swamped with work so forgive me!!! =)
Warmly,

  43. I am NOW a follewer! Being my first year teaching I am looking into anything that I can get my hands on for the cute kiddos! I love your ideas but had a question for you... Do you do centers? Just wondering how I should start them.

    ReplyDelete
  44. @ Moore Family- Hi and Thank you!!

    I actually don't do centers...I am a full blown workshop teacher. Te activities you'll find in my units are generally done during the other balanced literacy componets of my day. I was asked to share a schedule/lesson plan format so I could show how I fit things in. It is in no way perfect, but if you are interested in checking it out, I will post it when I get back in town! =)

    ***ANYONE ELSE READING...I FIXED SOME ERRORS ON THE UNIT, YOU MAY WANT TO RE-DOWNLOAD*** =)
