We are studying fairy tales this week and learning about how they have certain story elements. Not only do they have the usual story elements of characters, setting, problem, and solution, but they have other special features as well. Fairy Tales have kind and evil characters, sometimes royalty, magic, and end with a happily ever after. We are using pictures from the stories to figure out which tale we will be learning about. Then we read the story together and fill in a story map and fill out our book study chart.
We read the book and then watched a cartoon version of Snow White to see how sometimes fairy tales can be told in different ways.
We read the book and then watched a read aloud version of Little Red Riding Hood to see how sometimes fairy tales can be told in different ways.
We are taking down all of the Fairy Tale elements in a fun book study castle chart! We talk about and record the kind and evil characters, whether there is royalty in the story, the magic, and how the story ends.
We had a great time working in groups to measure different things in the classroom using non-standard measurement tools. We used chain links as our tools to measure the Smartboard, a bulletin board, the door, the window, the desks, the chart paper, and the filing cabinet!
