Comparing Fairy and Folk Tales

I LOVE this unit.
It's not the easiest to teach, but fractured fairy tales and fractured folk tales are some of my absolute favorite books! 

Check out what I did last year in first grade.

Here is what we are doing with our second graders this year.
We are working with two topic paragraphs. We definitely have to use rubrics a lot!
But they are getting it. 

Here is a rubric. 

Here are some of the books on my lesson plans for this unit!! 

Interesting in starting this in your classroom?

  1. Thanks for the terrific graphic organizers. I will definitely be using them with my students when we compare stories. I also love your choice of books. Great post to read.
