This week, we are going to start working on “Fairy Tales”
Fairy tales are fun stories to read and write. We have listened to a few throughout the school year and you probably have heard some at home as well. Here are some examples…
The Three Little Pigs
Three Billy Goats Gruff
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
The Little Red Hen
Fairy tales are important because they spark our imagination, and are often magical. They are NOT realistic and anything can really happen in them. The characters can be people or talking animals. Some characters are very good and kind. Sometimes there is an evil character in the story too. This type of story usually starts with “Once upon a time…” and it often ends with a “happily ever after”.
Listen to the story of The Little Red. Then, fill out the Elements of a Fairytale worksheet. You can print it out and complete it, OR complete it on Seesaw.
Start thinking of a fairy tale you would like to write next week. Start brainstorming! What will your characters look like? What are their names? Where is your story going to take place? What kind of problem and solution can they have? On Seesaw, there is a character paper you can plan out your main character. If you are making an animal character you can just use a blank piece of paper. J There is also a settings page. You can think of ideas for a problem and solution on the back of one of these. You can also just draw your ideas on plain paper if you would like. Like in class, these can be your “sloppy copies” so they don’t have to be neat. Just get ideas in your head! Next week, your writing assignment is going to be to write this story out for me. So, please really take your time and think about what you want to write. Just like with reading, the more you are interested in something, the harder you will work on it!
You can print these pages out OR complete them on Seesaw!
When you have finished your writing ideas, please send it to me via Dojo or post it on Seesaw.
This week, we are going to continue our unit called “Avid Readers”
Last week, I told you how Avid Readers are people who absolutely LOVE to read.
Please view the “Avid Readers” lesson posted on Seesaw. Send me pictures or videos on Seesaw of you being an “Avid Reader”.
These type of readers read a lot, find places to read everywhere, and keep stacks of books they can’t wait to read next. Avid Readers just can’t stop reading!!! Now that you know what kind of books you like the most, you need to start reading EVERYWHERE!
*Please continue to read on Raz-Kids and try to record at least one story for me to listen to you read this week! You should be reading at least 10-15 minutes each day. You are doing AMAZING!
