The last two weeks of school can be very trying for teachers and students. We have had a whole year of learning and everyone is ready for SUMMER BREAK! We have done a lot with Fairy Tales during the year, the kids love them and by now know the stories backwards and forwards. One of our district objectives is "Child increasingly interacts and communicates with peers to initiate pretend play scenarios that share a common plan and goal." This fit perfectly into my plan! The students work together to plan and produce a short skit to act out a Fairy Tale.
During the first week we do a shared writing of three different Fairy Tales (we use our social studies skills and vote on which three stories we want). During the shared writing we incorporate the characters, setting, problem and solution.
"I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down." or
"Granny what big eyes (ears, teeth) you have."
