Fun With Fairy Tales

My students need a Fairy Tale Reading Unit to encourage a love of reading. I want my students to enjoy reading so they will be lifelong learners.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are funny, kind, and eager to learn!

I work in a Title I school where over 100% of our students get free lunches and many families work very hard all day, every day, to support their family.

For some of my students English is their second language. My students need extra support to help them increase their reading fluency and comprehension. I want to encourage a love of reading for my students and provide them with learning that is engaging and hands-on to help them succeed.

My Project

Looking at specific character, setting, or plot differences within the stories can be a valuable learning tool, because it can improve comprehension and vocabulary.

Fairy Tales often contain key phrases and repetition, helping beginning readers to recognize patterns in reading.

The Fairy tale puppets will bring the stories to life. The STEAM blocks for the houses and bridge will be used to work with a group to figure out how to construct and problem solve. The books will be used during ELA block and also during small groups and student centers. This resource will provide engagement during reading and will provide hands-on science STEAM activities to build on students natural curiosity.
