Activity Description

Why This Is Helpful

 

Activity Description

Children will draw on their knowledge of story structure and fairy tales to write their own. Events from their own lives become the basis for personalized fairy tales that can be published, read aloud, or performed for others.

Why This Is Helpful

Children will review familiar books and movies to become familiar with elements of fairy tales. As they create their own personalized fairy tales, they practice writing skills and expand their knowledge of plot, character, and setting. By reading or acting out their tales, children practice oral presentation and literacy skills.

This activity was modified from the ReadWriteThink lesson plan "Fairy Tales from Life."
