Fairy Tales ~FREEBIE!


We are just now beginning one of my FAVORITE things to teach! Fairy Tales! So, so much fun! We kicked of our Fairy Tale unit with The Frog Prince. We read the traditional version today, worked on a Beginning, Middle, End organizer (boy, did they have some GREAT details in there!).


Tomorrow, we're going to write a new ending to the story. Believe it or not, in the traditional version we read from our school library, The Frog Prince by Paul Galdone, the princess THROWS THE FROG AGAINST A WALL, & it then turns into a prince! What?!? Is that just crazy? Or is it just me?! Hahahaha!

In any case, that wacky ending gave me the perfect launch point for, "Well, that's not the wayI would have ended the story".....and tomorrow, we're writing new endings. Can't wait to read what they come up with!

Just click the image above for the freebie!


I also found the Muppet's Frog Prince on You Tube (just click the image)! We'll be watching that and doing a compare/contrast. I am so excited about this! Some fantastic, fun activities to do here as we near the end of the year (only 11 more days to go!).

  2. Our third grade teachers are in the midst of fairy tales right now. They put on a play and then have a Fairy Tale Ball with the kiddos in costume. I'm going to share this with them.
    Oh, and who doesn't love Kermit?!
