Let’s Compare

Compare and contrast characteristics of the fairy tales but listing similarities and differences. Print the titles to create the second anchor chart.

Fairy Tale Booklet

Have learners document the characteristics from the fairy tales and anchor charts in their fairy tale booklet.

Fairy Tale Sensory Charts

Explore fairy tales with the five senses. Complete the charts together and have learners draw and write about what it would be like to experience life in a fairy tale using their senses on the interactive page.

Fairy Tale Predictable Chart Class Book

Use this resource to create a class book from the predictable chart created during the week.
